Looks like the third Mummy movie, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor has wrapped, whether we want it or not. Director Rob Cohen announced on his production blog that “After 91 days of shooting and 2,021 shots” they’re done. The last sequence shot was a nightclub sequence involving a bunch of romantic slowdancing. Also sounds like a decent way to end the movie.

Cohen of course has nothing but glowing things to say about the film and his cast. He may even mean it. Most movies look great while you’re filming them, it remains to be seen what it’ll look like up on screen. I still say that Rachel Weisz made the right move by bowing out and allowing herself to be replaced by Maria Bello. The script just isn’t that good. On the other hand, it’s an effects heavy, action movie so maybe the script means exactly jack squat.

For now, we’ll have to wait and see what comes out in the wash. The fourth film sets Brendan Fraser and his mummy hunting crew in China, hunting down a re-animated, formerly entombed, Chinese Emperor. So it’s appropriate that The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is set to premiere in Bejing, China on July 24, 2008.
