The Mummy 2017

Directed by Alex Kurtzman ‘The Mummy’ (2017) is the story of an ancient princess Ahmanet, played by Sofia Boutella, who resurrects from the dead. What made Kurtzman cast the French-Algerian dancer, model, and actress was her expressive eyes. Boutella’s outstanding ability to connect even through a largely mute performance in ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ (2015) left Kurtzman totally impressed.

Some of her other projects include Street Dance 2 (2012), Monsters: Dark Continent (2014) and Star Trek Beyond (2016).With no introduction needed, guess who is back? Tom Cruise! He will be starring as Nick Mortan, who stumbles into a large world of monsters after liberating the 5,000-year-old Ahmanet from her prison.Tom’s last few movies were ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ (2015) and ‘Jack Reacher: Never Go Back’ (2016). His upcoming projects include ‘American Made’ (2017) and ‘Mission Impossible 6’ (2018).

Another beauty to star in ‘The Mummy’ as Jenny Halsey, is an English actress, Annalelle Wallis. She is popular for her roles in period drama ‘The Tudors’ (2009-10), ‘Pan Am’, ‘Peaky Blinders’ (2013-2016) and film ‘Annabelle’.
An interesting fact about Wallis is that she started her career with a Bollywood movie called ‘Dil Jo Bhi Kahey…’ and then captured Hollywood.Other eminent stars to look forward to are Jake Johnson as Sgt. Vail,Courtney B. Vance as Col. Gideon Forster, Russell Crowe as Dr. Henry Jekyll, Javier Botet as Set, Selva Rasalingam as King Menehptre, Dylan Smith as Lorenzo Montanari, Rez Kempton as Foreman, Chasty Ballesteros as Kira Lee, Marwan Kenzari as Agent of Prodigium and Alaa Salf as Sickle Slave.
