Annabelle Wallis and Sofia Boutella also star. The film is set to bow on June 9, 2017.
The studio tapped Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan last summer to help develop a monster universe for Universal with rebooted versions of the studio’s classic monster movies. Kurtzman is also on board to direct, and will produce alongside Morgan and Sean Daniel.
Jon Spaihts is penning the script. Plot details are vague other than the fact that the pic will be set in the present day, unlike the previous three installments starring Brendan Fraser.
Universal executive VP of production Jon Mone and VP of development Jay Polidoro will oversee the project for the studio.
Kenzari also has key roles in Terry George’s “The Promise” alongside Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac and MGM’s “Ben-Hur” retelling, which stars Jack Huston. He can be seen next in “Collide” alongside Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones.
He is repped by ICM Partners and Janey van Ierland at Nummer19 in Holland.
New Girl star Jake Johnson has joined The Mummy, the Universal Studios tentpole that is serving as the gateway into the studio’s cinematic monster universe.
The comedic actor, who was a scene-stealer in his first tentpole, Universal’s Jurassic World, is joining a roll call that includes Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella, while Annabelle Wallis is in talks to also board the project.
The storyline is set in the modern day, with Cruise set to play a special forces soldier (or former soldier), sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Wallis, one of the stars of British gangster show Peaky Blinders, is to be a scientist while Boutella, who had a breakout role in Kingsman: The Secret Service, is in talks to play the titular role.
In a role written specifically for him, Johnson will play a member of the military.
Alex Kurtzman is directing the movie, headed for a April start, and is producing Mummy with Chris Morgan and Sean Daniel.
Johnson’s other feature credits include comedies 21 Jump Street, Neighbors and a starring turn in Let’s Be Cops.
He is repped by UTA, 3 Arts Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.
