Bob Orci Talks THE MUMMY & VAN HELSING; Hints At Shared Universe
In an interview with IGN, Bob Orci was asked about The Mummy and Van Helsing movie reboots that he and Alex Kurtzman are producing while he seemed to indicate a possible shared universe between the two franchises.
Although Orci didn’t officially announce a cinematic universe featuring Universal’s monsters is the final goal, he seemed to indicate even a possibility of a connection. Read what he has to say or watch the video embedded below to see if you agree.
“There’s an interesting thing that could happen at Universal where they have this amazing library of their old monsters and these kinds of heroes, and the idea of trying to create a universe [with] Van Helsing, and we’re also producing The Mummy for them. We’re kind of imagining updating these kinds of things. You don’t want to just make remakes when you’re doing a thing, unless it’s worthy of being a remake, but when you have an idea for something that can actually be made different and yet be true to what it was. We just had a notion of how to make it modern and have a slightly different tone. It’s not going to be just a remake.”
