Brendan Fraser has revealed he wasn't approached about a reboot of The Mummy - but he'd buy tickets to go and see it.

The Canadian actor played adventurer Rick O'Connell in the action trilogy, which is rumoured to be coming back for another instalment.

But Brendan told Crave Online: "I wasn't approached for it. I would certainly entertain the idea, and I know for sure that I will be there on opening day to get the good seat.

"Unless they call me for some in-joke, nudge-nudge, wink-wink reason to walk an actor through a cameo in the background a la Hitchcock or something. I don't even know if it's necessary, but how do I feel about that? I'm supportive of it."

He continued: "I think it's going to be great. It's good source material. So many films based on The Mummy were made even before that.

"I don't think for a minute that Steve Sommers (director and writer) and the current company were the ones who really brought it to any interest or prominence. Those characters were around in the cabinet of Universal monsters and have been for almost 100 years now."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
