Maria Bello Falls Victim to the "Mummy"

Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, The picture


Golden Globe nominee Maria Bello has been picked up to play the role of Evelyn Carnahan O'Connell that Rachel Weisz refused to reprise in "The Mummy 3."

Do express your joy, "Mummy" fans, Evelyn Carnahan O'Connell will still be in the gang indeed as the filmmakers of "The Mummy 3" has cast Maria Bello in for the role.

Bello, last seen in Michael Mayer-directed family drama "Flicka", is replacing Rachel Weisz who recently decided not to reprise the part, which she played in the two previous installments of the franchise.

Joining the likes of Brendan Fraser, Luke Ford, Jet Li, and Michelle Yeoh in the lineup, the actress will find her character embark on a new adventure with her husband (Fraser) and their full-grown son (Ford) in the forbidden tombs of China and the Himalayas, where they battle a shape-shifting mummy, a former Chinese emperor (Li) cursed by a wizard (Yeoh).

Already assigned to direct is "XXX" helmer Rob Cohen who will carry out the duty for Universal Pictures based on script by "Smallville" creators Miles Millar and Alfred Gough. Meanwhile, Sean Daniel, Jim Jacks, Bob Ducsay, and Stephen Sommers, director of the first two "Mummy", all serve as the producers.
