The Cast Of “The Mummy” (1999): Where Are They Now?

In 1992, archaeologists uncovered Tutankhamun’s tomb, a young pharaoh who once ruled over ancient Egypt. This got a public interest in all things Egyptian, and Hollywood quickly picked up on this trend with “The Mummy“, starring Boris Karloff, which was released in 1932. This movie tells the story of a long-dead high priest who returns to life in quest of his lost love. A remake was made decades later: the 1999 mega-hit The Mummy, which transported fans back to ancient Egypt once again.

The Cast Of “The Mummy” (1999) follows swashbuckling adventurer Rick O’Connell as he goes to Hamunaptra, the city of the dead, with librarian Evelyn and her brother. When they unintentionally awaken an ancient mummy named Imhotep, they faced up with many challenges. The film premiered on May 7, 1999, starring Brendan Fraser, John Hannah, Arnold Vosloo, Rachel Weisz, and others. It is a huge success with an impressive $416 million gross. It led to two sequels, prequels, and spin-off series, including “The Mummy Returns” and “The Scorpion King” as well as becoming an early springboard to the careers of several of the stars.

It’s been more than 20 years since The Mummy was released and the cast has undergone many changes in their lives and careers.

And in 2022, Fraser is going to appear opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming drama “Killers of the Flower Moon.” He will also play the villain in the DC Comics film “Batgirl”.

Weisz continued playing her role as Evelyn Carnahan in “The Mummy Returns,”. “The Mummy” pretty much launched Rachel’s career and helped her have many impressive roles such as “The Lovely Bones,” “Dream House,” “The Bourne Legacy,” and “The Lobster,” … And most recently in the 2018 period drama “The Favourite,” Weisz played Sarah Churchill alongside Emma Stone. She also took part in “Black Widow” movie as Melina. In 2022, the actress is set to star in the next TV version of “Dead Ringers,” a remake of David Cronenberg’s 1980s film of the same name.

John Hannah has also appeared in a number of television shows. Currently, the actor starred in the drama “Transplant” as Judd Bishop.
