However, Evelyn reads from the book of the dead and unleashes the immortal spirit of Imhotep - once a High Priest to the god-kings of Egypt, now resurrected in his mummified form. Rick then decides to take a modicum of responsibility for the situation and help them; however Evie is eventually captured. Rick then goes to rescue her and gets in a fight.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon EmperorEdit

Template:Main set in 1947 The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor will initially take place in ancient times in China and follow the background of the film's villain (Jet Li). The film will move forward to a post-World War II setting.[1] The film will take place roughly 14 years after the previous film, in which Rick and Evie's son Alex is now 24 years old, and has followed his parent's footsteps as an archaeologist and adventurer. It appears that Rick and Alex have become estranged over the years. In the third installment of The Mummy franchise Rick experimented with fly fishing and other activities to serve his hunger. Rick later meets with his son Alex after several years and reveals that he dropped the ball and wants to become a better father to his teenage son. Mid way through the movie Rick and the Han Emperor have a confrontation in which the emperor threw his dagger and pierced Rick in his stomach causing him to be treated by the pool of eternal life. This would now cause Rick to become an immortal.
