Annabelle Wallis is in talks to star in 'The Mummy' reboot.
The 'Peaky Blinders' actress is being lined up to star alongside Tom Cruise in Universal's new era of monster films, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
'Prometheus' screenwriter Jon Spaihts is working on the script and although plot details are being kept under wraps, the film will reportedly be set in the present day, unlike the original films starring Brendan Fraser.
'Star Trek Into Darkness' producer Alex Kurtzman is to direct and produce the remake alongside Sean Daniel, who produced the original three films.
While Cruise will reportedly play a major role in the film's development, he isn't expected to produce.
Kurtzman and Chris Morgan last summer teamed up with Universal to create a universe with its monster movie library at the forefront.
Characters from the films are expected to appear in each other's instalments before teaming up for an 'Avengers'-style extravaganza.
Annabelle is currently starring opposite Sasha Baron Cohen in The Brothers Grimsby and will next be seen in Guy Ritchie's 'Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur'.
