You know what? I don’t have a problem with this. I like Maria Bello.
Bello Replaces Weisz On “Mummy”

image Maria Bello (“A History of Violence,” Coyote Ugly”) will replace Rachel Weisz in the third installment of Universal Pictures “The Mummy” reports Variety.
Bello will takeover Weisz’ role of Evelyn Carnahan O’Connell. Brendan Fraser, Luke Ford, Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh are already set to star in the Rob Cohen-directed film.
Scripted by “Smallville” creators Miles Millar and Alfred Gough, the film brings the O’Connells and their full-grown son (Ford) to the forbidden tombs of China and the Himalayas, where they battle a shape-shifting mummy, a former Chinese emperor (Li) cursed by a wizard (Yeoh).
Maria Bello can actually act and I’m not afraid of her taking over Rachel Weisz part. She is a surprise replacement because they are replacing an amazing actress with another amazing actress. What’s going on here? Finaly a step in the right direction for Mummy 3!
