The King’s Return, which starred Jason Statham and Tom Hiddleston, was one of the most divisive films of all time, as the film was based on the books by Mark Lawrence and Michael De Luca.
But the movie has a new life thanks to the new film by filmmaker David Fincher, who is helming the sequel.
The story is set during the King’s return from the grave, which he says was an exciting opportunity to explore the film’s central themes.
Here, Finchers and star Jamie Foxx discuss the importance of tradition, why it’s important to create a new film, and whether or not the film will be about Mummy.
