'The Mummy' franchise is one of the most popular movie franchises to be existing in the history of cinemas. 'The Mummy' was theatrically released in May 1999. Despite mixed reviews from critics, it was a commercial success and grossed over 416.4 million dollars worldwide against a production budget of 80 million dollars. The film's success spawned two direct sequels, 'The Mummy Returns' (2001) and 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.' The Stephen Sommers-directed 'Mummy' films starred Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, John Hannah, and Arnold Vosloo. And now, it seems Fraser is interested in making a comeback to the movie franchise.

During a recent interview Brendan Fraser, whose comeback in 'The Whale' made him the Oscar's Best Actor frontrunner, expressed his interest to return to the 'Mummy' franchise. Brendan Fraser jumped to say “Absolutely! Do you have a script? Yeah! It was great fun. Are you kidding?” when he was asked if he would ever return to play Rick O'Connell. However, a Tom Cruise starring 'Mummy' movie was released which wasn't much appreciated for one too many reasons and fans seem to be rooting for Fraser's return especially after getting disappointed three years back.

A fan shared, "He’s so wholesome - get that script, get Rachel Weisz back too, and let’s roll the cameras," while another shared, "Brendan doesn’t realize how loved he is. There’s not a household that didn’t have George of the jungle or The Mummy in it." A fan tweeted, "somebody get him a script and call rachel, john and oded!" Lastly, a fan commented, "@NSFWorld_ protect this man at all costs."
