Wiseman (not to be confused with Wiseguy) = bad thing.  Very bad.  I'm hoping that Sleepy Hollow won't suffer too much from his interference, because I kinda dig the premise.

An old school remake of the original Boris Karloff "Mummy" would be sweet.  Practical effects, little-to-no CGI, and a story of character and suspense, not gore and idiocy.  Ah, I dare to dream....

I'll do it. Excellent opportunity to make it into the DGA.

I actually enjoyed the newest version of Total Recall.  Not as much as the first, but it was fun.

As for The Mummy.  I'm not excited about a restart.  I liked the first Frasier movie and the others were okay for a viewing.  I don't think we need more.  What's with all the Avatar hate.  Unless you mean the last Airbender, because that was the worst adaption in the history of adaptions.

But it is Hollywood... which means there will be a long line of producers, with each one needing to show just how "creative" he is.  So instead of a good small scale horror film - which so fits this charactor - it will have to balloon up into some world threatening plot.  The the duel of "creative thought" comes in.  "So then the mummy throws the sphinx..."   "And the hero has a talking wolf, who is really the spirit of Inibus...  " Then the hero meets a belly dancer, but we find she has strange mystical powers..."

Next stop... steaming heap.

 Len Wiseman passing on Mummy reboot is fine, he should've passed on Underworld 3&4.

I am anxiously waiting for the Sleepy Hollow TV Show, I am crossing my fingers its a hit.

As far as rebooting a new Mummy movie, I'm not even giving it a thought, I'm content on watching my dvd of the old Mummy movie, maybe the first Mummy with Brenden Frasier.
