Marwan Kenzari Joins Tom Cruise in ‘The Mummy’ Reboot

Marwan Kenzari has joined the cast of Universal’s “The Mummy” reboot starring Tom Cruise.

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.
