Russell Crowe enters The Mummy world with Cruise
According to Collider.com, the actor shared that he will be joining Universal Pictures’ ‘monster universe’ as Dr Jekyll, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Crowe said: “This one is kind of more designed to seriously scare the s**t out of you.” The film is one in a series of reworkings of classic monster films by the studio that’s seeking to create a ‘monster universe’ to rival the superhero universe of Marvel and DC Comics at rival studios Disney and Warner Bros.
Crowe is set to play the tormented Dr Henry Jekyll who changes into murderous madman Mr Hyde. The filming of the movie has already begun in England with Cruise as a Navy SEAL who must battle a rampaging mummy in the Iraq desert.
