Tom Cruise's The Mummy Looking To Add Peaky Blinders Star Annabelle Wallis


According to Variety, Universal Pictures is in talks with Annabelle Wallis for the female lead in their latest reboot of The Mummy.

If negotiations go well, Wallis will be playing an archaeologist in the film and will join a cast that features Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella—who is playing the iconic monster.

"The storyline is set in the modern day with Cruise's character to be a special forces soldier (or former soldier)," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
