A couple of months ago a rumor surfaced that Universal was considering the idea of a female mummy in their reboot of The Mummy, and that's exactly what Boutella will be doing. Putting a female spin on established brands is hot in Hollywood right now, and Universal is getting in on some of that action. Boutella may be starring opposite Tom Cruise who is still in talks to join the film as a Navy SEAL who shares a past with her.
Alex Kurtzman is directing The Mummy from a script written by Jon Spaihts for release on March 24th 2017. Boutella also has an upcoming role opposite Charlize Theron in The Coldest City. [TheWrap]
