Van Helsing had so much promise and it failed so hard. I hope the new one lives up to its promise.
Is this project being dubbed Stephen Sommers Mess Clean-up?
Oh please let this Van Helsing be awesome! While the original concept for a Van Helsing attraction is now essentially the Forbidden Journey it could still be used in a similar way to make one hell of an attraction. Take the intimate experience of the FJ, remove the screens, and update the ride system then add in the characters of Van Helsing, HOLY COW!
I know we've all talked about what could possibly replace Lost Continent, and Van Helsing could definitely work, and if would be a way to get the movie monsters into the parks....
Sweet JESUS YES!!!
I agree with Jake. The obvious answer is a Citizen Kane attraction.
Sleds will be the vehicle.
We enter through Xanadu!
Well, all hope for an even half-decent Mummy reboot is now dead and buried.
Wiseman is where good stories go to die........
I don't mind that hiring....
Ehhh I'm indifferent on it but still hoping for a huge success to get the Mummy a overlay at USF.
I am 100% hoping the Mummy reboot gets canned. After hearing that they are going to make it a plain horror movie just defeats to purpose and has not interest from me. Its stupid that they just go and change the genre of an existing and recent franchise. The latest trilogy can get away with it as they can decades after the first one. The Mummy films are adventure films and turning them into horror would be the same as turning Indiana Jones or POTC into horror movies, or even the reverse and turning saw into a drama. Plus add to that the fact that many horror franchises just put out crummy cheap films, with the same scare tactics over and over again.
Well they did manage to make the last Indiana Jones and POTC movies into "horrible" movies Those were just scary to watch :rofl: Like HTF I'm I'm indifferent to a Mummy reboot. I still think the Boris Karloff version is a classic that's yet to be topped
Looking forward to Van Helsing, and hopefully the resulting theme park attraction. I have to say, as a huge fan of the 90's reboot, the new concept, and the people behind it, does not give me much enthusiasm
Universal has brought another script writer on board for The Mummy:
The New Mummy Movie Is Switching Gears
This article popped up today. Interesting that Universal is shying away from a darker re-telling. Makes sense they want to make this a family-friendly romp. Opens up more merchandising and theme park options.
The Wrap is reporting that Muschietti left because, "Apparently, the project has changed direction, as Muschietti wanted to deliver a darker take rather than the four-quadrant, more family-friendly action-adventure blockbuster that Universal now has in mind."
That's actually quite disappointing! I was really looking forward to a horrific retelling of this story!
