Brendan Fraser might be down to unwrap another layer of The Mummy franchise.
While riding a critical push (potentially to his first Oscar nomination) for his leading performance in Darren Aronofsky's new drama The Whale, the 54-year-old star tells EW he's game to return to the blockbuster action series as explorer Rick O'Connell, a role he previously played in three movies between 1999 and 2008.
“Not, like, officially, no, but I know the fans have,” Fraser responds to a question about being approached to reboot the series. “I've been having a great time in recent years, in my so-called hiatus, going to fan conventions, keeping it real, meeting everybody and thanking them personally for putting me where I am. I think I got over myself, insofar as 'I'm too busy' or 'That's not for me,' I don't know what I was thinking. I needed to have some gratitude.”
