Have your first look on the martial arts expert in his role as the cursed Chinese Emperor.
Never miss to give an update to his official blog for his current project "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor", director Rob Cohen has delightfully posted another production still from the project, this time featuring the first look of martial arts expert Jet Li.
As seen on the above left, the photo shows the back image of Brendan Fraser as Rick O'Connell as he is about to take a kick from a gravity-defying Li, who plays a despotic Emperor in 50 B.C. whose evil is punished by a terrible curse. Li, according to Cohen, just shot his scene of riding a black stallion into battle in a jade armor on Monday, October 22, 2007.
"He has been totally professional and warm to me and the entire crew, like the prince he truly is," so Cohen gave his impression on the actor.
More to say, the Cornwall-born filmmaker also revealed more info about the music used for the flick, saying an original score with new themes has been recorded at Abbey Road Studio, played by the London Symphony Orchestra.
"It will be massive, thematic, and pulsing," he promised. "I have great respect for Al Silvestri but this is a new, re-booted "Mummy" and it will have the score to match."
