(New York, NY, April 27, 2001) - Director Stephen Sommers is at the
helm once more for The Mummy Returns, the eagerly anticipated sequel
to 1999's worldwide blockbuster The Mummy. Brendan Fraser reprises
his role as adventurer Rick O'Connell. Also returning are co-stars
Rachel Weisz (as Evelyn), John Hannah (as Evelyn's brother, Jonathan)
and Arnold Vosloo (as Imhotep). The soundtrack includes the exclusive
new song "Forever May Not Be Long Enough," performed by LIVE and co-
written by Glen Ballard. The score was written by composer Alan
Silvestri, and will be released May 1, 2001 from Decca Records.
Set in 1935, ten years after the events of The Mummy, a band of
treasure hunters seeking artifacts to sell to the British Museum
unearth the remains of the high priest Imhotep. Transported to
London, Imhotep is resurrected and once more embarks on his quest for
immortality. But another force has also been set loose in the world -
one born of the darkest rituals of ancient Egyptian mysticism, and
even more powerful than Imhotep. When these two forces clash, the
fate of the world will hang in the balance, sending Rick and Evelyn
on a desperate race to save the world from unspeakable evil.
The Decca soundtrack album features the epic original score by Oscar,
Grammy and Golden Globe nominee Alan Silvestri (Back To The Future,
Forrest Gump, What Lies Beneath, The Mexican). It also includes a
brand new track by the powerful rock band LIVE, whose four
MCA/Radioactive albums have sold millions of copies worldwide. The
track, "Forever May Not Be Long Enough," is co-written and produced
by five-time Grammy winner Glen Ballard, known for his chart-topping
successes with Alanis Morissette, Aerosmith, Michael Jackson and most
recently the Dave Matthews Band. This track, played over the end
credits of the film, is exclusively available on The Mummy Returns
soundtrack album until LIVE's next studio album is released by
MCA/Radioactive on July 31.
Universal Pictures and Alphaville Productions present The Mummy
Returns, the first blockbuster release of the summer. The film opens
May 4 in theaters everywhere and features groundbreaking visual
effects by the Oscar-winning Industrial Light & Magic.
