Andres Muschietti ("Mama") is in talks to direct the reboot of "The Mummy" franchise over at Universal Pictures.

Len Wiseman ("Underworld," "A Good Day to Die Hard") was previously attached to helm the project but left in late July.

Jon Spaihts penned the script which shifts the action to the contemporary era and sports new characters.

Sean Daniel, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing.
