Conversation between director Rob Cohen and actor Jet Li re: production of the upcoming blockbuster, The Mummy 3:
ROB COHEN: So you’ll do it then? You’ll play the villain in The Mummy 3?
JET LI: Explain to me again what this has to do with Pyramids.
ROB COHEN: Terra Cotta Warriors, dude. There are all kinds of the walking dead. It’s mysterious. It’s Mummy.
JET LI: Is Brendan Fraser in it? Is Rachel Weisz in it?
ROB COHEN: Um, I, I mean, probably man. Anyway, think of the moves you can use! You’re the undead! You’re like the kung-freakin-fu undead!
JET LI: I vowed never to do another action movie.
ROB COHEN: This isn’t action, man… it’s FACTION. These are facts we’re dealing with.
JET LI: I don’t think you used the word “faction” correctly.
ROB COHEN: Buddy, I know all about post World War 1 China.
JET LI: How?
ROB COHEN: Jet, I directed The Fast and the Furious. I’m down with the Ornamentals, if ya know what I mean.
JET LI: What do you know about my people?
ROB COHEN: What do you know about my people?
JET LI: Good point.
ROB COHEN: Do you like money? Do you like girls? Do you like action? Why would you vow against action?
JET LI: You’re right. I love money.
ROB COHEN: We all do.
JET LI: It smells good.
ROB COHEN: So you’ll do it then?
JET LI: But what do I have to do with the Pyramids?
ROB COHEN: Nothing.
JET LI: I’m in. Call my agent.
