Before "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" made its way to the theaters last Friday, August 1, it has long been rumored that the filmmakers have thought off of bringing to big screen two more sequels. Though the development of those sequels still depend on the result of "Dragon Emperor", director Rob Cohen apparently has prepared a twist for "The Mummy 4".

Giving out spoiler to those who have not watched the third "Mummy" movie, the 59-year-old filmmaker revealed that he has provided an open door for the fourth installment in the end of "Dragon Emperor". He noted that Brendan Fraser's character Rick O'Connell is now immortal due to the exposure to the pool of eternal life and his brother-in-law, Jonathan, has obtained a powerful artifact.

"Rick, because he was treated by the pool of eternal life, Rick is now immortal. I'd love to explore how that plays out for him," explained the helmer of "The Fast and the Furious". "Another spoiler, Jonathan [John Hannah] winds up with the artifact in this film and he doesn't realize, nor do we, what its powers are. In my mind, that artifact still has a lot of prizes in it, the eye of Shangri La, this big diamond."

On the possible location for the fourth film, Cohen declared that he would take "Mummy 4" to another culturally interesting country opening chances for Peru or Mexico. "What I'm really happy about is that, by taking 'The Mummy' out of Egypt and putting it in China, by exploring a different approach to the quest for immortality, we now have it clear that the 'Mummy' franchise can travel," he confessed.

"Now we know that if we want to go to Mexico or we want to go to Peru, we can because there's a cultural truth there of the mummies and these beautiful cultures. They have a lot of mummies. The Aztec culture had a lot of mummies and some of their mummy designs for the Foundation Army were taken from Mexican mummies that they have found," Cohen added. "So I think that somehow that might make the basis of a good story."
