Could we witness Rick O'Connell's return on the big screen? If Universal Pictures decided to return to this version of the franchise of The Mummy Brendan Fraser is expected to revive his former hero, monster hunter, hunter of artifacts. Now, the real question is whether this can really happen.

First, let's dig into what has been said. Brendan Fraser, currently playing in the Doom Patrol franchise on DC Universe, was asked about The Mummy's first starring 20 years ago. The actor said enthusiastically that he would be happy to review the franchise, but his return is subject to a major condition. Here is what Fraser had to say about it.

This could make a fourth Mummy movie in the previous version of the franchise, which has been dormant for 11 years since The Mummy : The Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, a difficult sell. Once again, Hollywood is fueled by nostalgia nowadays and if they could put together the right pieces of the puzzle, it was something that could work. At the very least, Brendan Fraser is happy to take this call if the opportunity arose. This news comes to us via CinemaBlend.
