Universal may have found the next A-lister to join its monster movie universe.
Russell Crowe is in early talks to play a Dr. Jekyll-type role, with the character first making an appearance in “The Mummy” starring Tom Cruise, sources tell Variety.
While other actors — like Johnny Depp in “The Invisible Man” — will first appear in standalone projects, insiders say some of the classic characters will make cameos in “The Mummy” as a means of launching spinoff franchises.
“The Mummy” is set to bow on June 9, 2017.
