Billy Ray has been tapped to do a draft of THE MUMMY (REBOOT) for Universal. This isn’t a rewrite of Jon Spaihts, who is also doing a draft. This is a concurrent draft meant to be a possible alternative if Spaihts doesn’t deliver or vice versa. Which is… insanity. Such is the studio way.
Story is still being kept under wraps but each draft is said to be based in a contemporary setting.
Producing will be Sean Daniel.
Ray last wrote “The Hunger Games” and is currently working on drafts of “Put Your Dreams Away”, “Gears of War” and “Conjure Wife”, which he is also attached to direct.
He is repped by CAA.
