It is well known that Universal has decided to take it's Classic monsters and give them reboots. The studio is in the process of bringing them back to life on the big screen, with the idea of creating it's own universe to where characters can cross over from different films.
One of the projects in particular that is now on the forefront is a reboot for THE MUMMY. This film has been through a lot of difficulties but it looks as things are moving forward well.
Previously we learned the news that Tom Cruise has signed on with the project. Cruise will be portraying a special forces solider.
We have just learned that actor Jake Johnson will be playing the part of another member of the military in a role that was written specifically for him.
