Brendan Fraser has left the door open for a potential return to The Mummy film franchise.


In a light-hearted exchange during an interview with Deadline, Fraser quipped, "Honestly, I don't have any top-secret information about it," before adding, "But the possibility has been floating around for a while. I'm not averse to it. I can't think of an actor who wouldn't want a job. It's a unique experience being this well-known and not currently employed, so sign me up."

Fraser famously portrayed the adventurous Rick O'Connell in the 1999 hit film "The Mummy," reprising the role in 2001's "The Mummy Returns" and later in 2008's "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor."


The actor elaborated on his stance, saying, "I don't have a specific blueprint for my next career move, but I do believe that at the age of 54, it should be something that resonates with me. It's becoming increasingly clear that our work can leave a lasting impact, potentially changing the way people perceive the world."

Fraser's most recent cinematic venture was "The Whale," directed by Darren Aronofsky. In the film, he portrayed Charlie, a reclusive man weighing 600 pounds, who embarks on a journey to reconnect with his 17-year-old daughter, played by Sadie Sink from "Stranger Things." The movie debuted in the US in December 2022 and is set to release in the UK on February 3.
