Brendan Fraser says 'sign me up' for The Mummy 4

Brendan Fraser says 'sign me up' for The Mummy 4

And we won't be the ones to stop him.

If there was any doubt about it at all, the Brenaissance is in full swing. Actor Brendan Fraser has won countless hearts and scored countless accolades for his latest performance in The Whale, with a six-minute standing ovation at the Venice International Film Festival.

How do you follow that up? Fraser had taken some time out of the spotlight owing to personal issues, but it's obvious that he's been missed by both fans and peers. Wholesomely, he expressed that he isn't used to the praise that has been lavished upon him. "Apart from being a part of some impressive and talented ensemble casts, I think the last time that I waited to hear my name called aloud to receive an award was in grade four, and it was from the peewee bowling league," he said while accepting his TIFF Tribute Award.

Last year, Fraser met a fan who commended his bravery for speaking out about his alleged assault - check out his response below:

Aside from the upcoming films Killers of the Flower Moon and Brothers and the continuation of Doom Patrol, it's all to play for for Fraser. Fans have been hankering for him to step back into the shoes of Rick O'Connell, the savvy and swashbuckling hero of The Mummy series, and lo and behold, he's not against the idea.

Speaking to Deadline, Fraser showed he is enthusiastic to return to that universe but he isn't aware if there are any plans to revive The Mummy after the poor performance of the reboot. Yes, the one directed by Alex Kurtzman who then went on to say that it was "probably the biggest failure of [his] life." That one.

“Gosh, I don’t know any juicy details about it,” explained Fraser. “But it’s kind of an open-ended question for some time now. I’m not opposed to it. I don’t know an actor that doesn’t want a job. I don’t think I’ve been this famous and unsalaried at the same time in my professional life, so sign me up.”

Following the sudden success he's seen, the actor is conscious that his career is at a precipice. “I don’t really have any specific designs on what I want to do next, but I do know that at the ripe old age of 54, it should be something I care about,” said Fraser. “I’m starting to feel that there really is a sense of permanency in what we do. It really can reach people in a way that can change how they see the world.” Well, whatever he turns to next, I can confirm that we will be watching.
