Mummy 3 Heads For "Digital Desert" In Montreal

Although Universal's first "Mummy" re-make in 1999 filmed on location in Morrocco, Montreal recently recreated ancient 'Sparta' for the upcoming feature "300", using CGI and blue screens.

"The Mummy 3" will now take advantage of Montreal's world-class effects houses to recreate the Egyptian desert, with Canadian actor Brendan Fraser returning to the role of adventurer 'Rick O'Connell.
Great, so it's going to look super fake. You can't recreate the hot burning sun of a real desert in a studio.
