The Hollywood Reporter brings us the following:
Andres Muschietti, who directed Universal’s surprise hit horror movie Mama, is circling a deal to come aboard the studio's reboot of its Mummy franchise.
The move comes after an intense search caused by the late July exit of Len Wiseman.
It is also one of the first decisive moves made by Donna Langley, who was made chairman of Universal Pictures after Monday’s dramatic shake-up that saw the exit of chairman Adam Fogelson and the elevation of Jeff Shell to chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group. (To be clear, however, Muschietti first began to meet with the studio in August.)
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing the reboot along with Sean Daniel.
