Mummy update

Jet Li unearths role in "Mummy 3"
Jet Li is in negotiations to play the villainous title character in "The Mummy 3," whose plot details are being kept under wraps.

Rob Cohen ("Stealth") will direct the Universal Pictures project. The action will be set in China, with Li's story beginning in ancient times before moving to a post-World War II setting. It is also known that one sequence involves the famous terra-cotta warriors, the collection of 6,000 men and their horses that were originally constructed to protect the tomb of an emperor.

What? Not in Egypt? Sacrilege! And, um, what about Anck Su Namun? That would, errr, detract from the, ummmm, realism! Yeah, that's it. Historical accuracy is my only concern.

Okay, one for the chicks, too:

Interestingly, Vosloo was on a short-lived ABC series called Veritas: The Quest which, IIRC, had some form of ancient history theme. Can't remember for the life of me what it was about though.
