Production on The Mummy 3 keeps slogging along, although now the film will be without its lead actress, Rachel Weisz. For undisclosed reasons, Weisz has pulled out of the project, although star Brendan Frasier will be in the film, banking what is said to be 'top-tier' money for the project. TheFeed is pretty sure that the 'undisclosed reasons' that Weisz left the film is that she 'read the script,' 'realized she's a real actress now,' and 'didn't want to destroy her career by making a piece of s**t.'
Frasier doesn't have similar concerns.
Also, there is reported to be the character of Alex, Frasier and Weisz's son from The Mummy Returns. As a matter of fact, the film is said to focus more on this character than the Frasier character, which is just what you want onscreen after paying someone 'top-tier' money...for them to be a glorified 'guest star.'
