Universal Pictures has adjusted its 2016 schedule, moving Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy to June 24, 2016. The Snow White and the Huntsman prequel, The Huntsman, is taking The Mummy‘s original date of April 22, 2016.
The Mummy offers a new take on the legend that has endured since the dawn of man. The new film is conceived with dramatic intensity by an imaginative creative team led by Kurtzman and producers Roberto Orci, Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious series, Wanted) and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy, The Best Man series). Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) wrote the screenplay, and Bobby Cohen executive produces.
The Mummy is the first film to claim the June 24, 2016 date.
