By Super Admin

Brendan Fraser is to star in The Mummy 3. The

actor has signed up for the action sequel but his co-star from the previous two

instalments Rachel Weisz will not be reprising her role as Evelyn Carnahan

O'Connell. Martial arts expert Jet Li is to star as a villain in the movie which

will be set in China while Rob Cohen - whose previous films include

Stealth and The Fast and the Furious - is taking the helm as

director.

Oscar-winner Weisz has pulled out the project due to other

filming commitments. She has agreed to star in The Brothers Bloom and

Phillip Noyce's Australian drama 'Dirt Music' which is due to start shooting in

August. The Mummy 3 is scheduled for a 2008 release and filming will

start in the late summer. Universal is hopeful the third movie will match the

success of its two predecessors which took over $830 million worldwide combined.
