Universal Sets Release Date for The Mummy Reboot

The MummyUniversal reps have informed us of a few release dates that you should know about for The Seventh Son, The Boys Next Door and, notably, The Mummy reboot.

Regarding the latter: The Mummy is set for release on April 22, 2016.  Here's an early blurb from the studio:  "A legend that has endured since the dawn of man is reborn in The Mummy, Universal Pictures’ all-new epic action-adventure.  The Mummy is conceived with dramatic intensity by an imaginative creative team including director Andy Muschietti (Mama) and producers Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Star Trek and Transformers series) and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy).  Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) wrote the screenplay, and Bobby Cohen and Barbara Muschietti will executive produce."

Meanwhile, Seventh Son – a Legendary film starring Jeff Bridges – got bumped from early 2014 to February 6, 2015.  Ouch.  And, the Blumhouse thriller The Boy Next Door arrives January 23, 2015.  The details:  "Jennifer Lopez leads the cast in The Boy Next Door, a psychological thriller that explores a forbidden attraction that goes much too far.  Directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) and written by Barbara Curry, the film also stars Ryan Guzman, John Corbett and Kristin Chenoweth.  The Boy Next Door is produced by Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions, Lopez and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas of Nuyorican Productions, Benny Medina of The Medina Company and John Jacobs of Smart Entertainment."

    I was really hoping they’d make the Mummy movie back into horror. I guess they aren’t. Admittedly, I liked the first one, but the series got too ridiculous quickly.
