Courtney B. Vance is coming off some absolutely incredible work in FX’s excellent The People Vs. OJ Simpson, and it seems as if Hollywood has sat up and taken notice of his performance, as the actor has been cast alongside Tom Cruise in Universal’s The Mummy.

The report didn’t include any details on Vance’s role here, other than the fact that he’s playing a colonel (who will likely share a lot of scenes with Cruise’s Navy SEAL). Regardless of how heavily he factors into things, Vance is a very strong talent who just recently did some career best work in the aforementioned FX series, so we’re definitely excited to see him join a high-profile film like this one.

Vance will be part of a cast that also includes Sofia Boutella, Annabelle Wallis and Jake Johnson, while Alex Kurtzman will direct from a script by Jon Spaihts. Not a bad line-up of talent, eh?

With plans in place to ignite a shared monsters universe – comprising of Frankenstein’s Monster, Dracula, the Invisible Man, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Wolf Man – Alex Kurtzman’s reboot of The Mummy will hope to jump-start a franchise when it opens on June 9, 2017.
