Director Rob Cohen has updated his website with another update for the summer 2008 film The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Included in the update is the first photo of Jet Li.
Here’s some of what was posted:
Today, I shot Jet Li on his black stallion riding into battle in his jade armor. He looked nothing short of an Emperor. He has been totally professional and warm to me and the entire crew, like the prince he truly is.
As to the music: guys, trust me. Randy and I have done two classic scores (DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY and DRAGONHEART) that continue to be used in trailers and commercials a decade and a half later. This will be an original score with new themes, played by the London Symphony Orchestra recorded at Abbey Road Studios. There will nothing “synth paddy” about it. It will be massive, thematic, and pulsing. I have great respect for Al Silvestri but this is a new, re-booted “Mummy” and it will have the score to match.
Directed by Rob Cohen and starring Brendan Fraser, Jet Li and Maria Bello, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor hits theaters on August 1, 2008
