You only have yourself to blame for this news.
Due to the overwhelming audience response to the recent The Mummy: The Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, Rob Cohen and friends are already planning (threatening?) to birth a fourth film in the family friendly franchise. So after spreading their love and fecal matter throughout the Middle East and China, where should Rick and Evelyn O’Connell (aka Brendan Fraser and Maria Bello) go next? Well according to MTV the answer to that question is South America and/or Mexico!
In completely different interviews taking place days and miles apart, both Fraser and Bello suggested South American locales for a fourth mummy adventure. MTV seems to think Bello’s suggestion of “the Amazon” and Fraser’s possibility of “Peru” are “Geographically… too close for coincidence.” (We won’t tell them that parts of the Amazon actually extend into Peru…) Desperate for answers MTV tracked down director Cohen and made him spill the beans.
“What I’m really happy about is that, by taking ‘The Mummy’ out of Egypt and putting it in China, by exploring a different approach to the quest for immortality, we now have it clear that the ‘Mummy’ franchise can travel,” he said. “Now we know that if we want to go to Mexico or we want to go to Peru, we can because there’s a cultural truth there of the mummies and these beautiful cultures… So I think that somehow that might make the basis of a good story.”
Cohen then added that if you thought the Yetis from Tomb of the Dragon Emperor were cool, you’ll be shitting yourselves when the Chupacabras attack.
