Maria Bello Replaces Rachel Weisz in Third "Mummy" Movie

Posted on Monday, May 14th, 2007 12:23 PM

Variety is reporting that Maria Bello will replace Rachel Weisz in the third "Mummy" movie. News came through last month that Weisz turned down the role of Evelyn Carnahan O'Connell, which she played in the first two movies.

Bello was most recently on the big screen in "Flicka" and "A History of Violence" and is appearing in the upcoming movies "The Jane Austen Book Club" and "Butterfly on a Wheel."

Is this a good thing? I'm split on the idea. Maria Bello is a good dramatic actress, and I've enjoyed watching the movies she's been in, but the "Mummy" formula is based on a combination of action and humor, and it will be interesting to see if she can pull it off and make the role her own.
