Brendan Fraser will reprise his role as Rick O'Connell in "The Mummy 3."

Rick O'Connell will be back onscreen. According to TMZ.com, Brendan Fraser has been signed up to once again play the character following Universal's decision to make "The Mummy 3" of which production is expected to begin early next year.

While plot details of the movie remain undisclosed, it has been confirmed that "Smallville" creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are set to pen the script. As for the director, Universal is reported to have made an offer to "Jurassic Park III" helmer Joe Johnston, so the return of Stephen Sommers on the director's seat seems unlikely to happen.

Last seen playing a Los Angeles district attorney named Rick Cabot in Academy Award-winning film "Crash", Fraser is scheduled to first shoot "Inkheart" for director Iain Softley in November. Accompanying him in the cast is "The Da Vinci Code" star Paul Bettany.
