In the 1990s, Universal Pictures was seeking to create a remake of The Mummy, which was released in 1932. Through the early 1990s, the studio had several directors attached to the project, including Clive Barker and Joe Dante, but their proposals were passed over. In 1994, Romero wrote a draft for the film that Universal turned down for being too dark. Ultimately, Stephen Sommers was attached as director, and the remake was released in 1999.
