Dwayne Johnson Set To Produce The Reboot Of ‘The Scorption King’
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is set to start producing the reboot of the Scorpion King as first seen in The Mummy Returns.
News came out recently that one of the most wealthy actors in the world, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, will be producing the reboot of the 2002 film The Scorpion King. The Mummy Returns franchise was about a group of archaeologists who woke up an ancient evil and must seek help from an Egyptian high priest which is their only chance of defeating the Scorpion King.
The Scorpion King was Dwayne Johnson’s first ever sliver screen appearance which he first debuted in The Mummy Returns and then an year later in ‘The Scorpion King’ which told the story of how he rose to fame set 5,000 years before the The Mummy franchise storyline was originally set. With the movies quickly rising to fame after the spin off came out its no wonder why Universal Pictures decided to give the honour to Dwayne Johnson to produce the revival of this series who he will also be working alongside its very own production company Seven Bucks Productions.
Although we do not have any official information released yet on the reboots storyline, cast or any other pieces of information which could give us an insight to what this movie could be about as its still too early to tell. However, according to sources it has been said that Jonathan Herman will be writing the script for The Scorpion King so no doubt its in capable hands as he’s the one who also wrote the screenplay for Straight Outta Compton.
As first seen in the original The Mummy movies, the amount of special effects and CGI used was insane and definitely made it one of the best for its time. In our opinion, this franchise is underrated and deserves more attention as it is such a fantastic watch. With the modern day technology we have nowadays as well and the tools filmmakers have at their fingertips, its going to be exciting to see the final outcome of this revival as it should turn out to be a CGI masterpiece if its done in the same style like its predecessors.
