Universal Monsters: Beauty & The Beast Helmer Bill Condon In Talks To Direct Bride Of Frankenstein

14 April 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

In a few months, we will be getting a reboot of the Universal monster franchise, The Mummy. This film will kick off a shared universe of monsters that contain such iconic characters as the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the creature from the Black Lagoon, and of course, Dracula. 

We’ve only seen a teaser and a trailer for one film thus far, but Universal is still starting to put all the other pieces in place in case of success. We already know they’re starting work on other films like The Wolf Man and Van Helsing, but it sounds like they’re already taking some pretty big steps for another film of theirs, Bride of Frankenstein.

According to a new report from Deadline, Bill Condon, the man behind Disney’s latest $1 billion hit Beauty and the Beast, is currently in talks with Universal to helm the adaptation »

14 April 2017 12:42 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bill Condon, who brought Beauty and the Beast to the big screen this year (a film which has now taken over $1 billion at the worldwide box-office), is looking at another big franchise for his next work. Condon may direct Bride Of Frankenstein for Universal, another film in their planned Monsters Universe which kicks off this summer with The Mummy.

Deadline reports the news that Condon, who also directed Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2, is in talks for the big-budget movie, which is produced by Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan from a script by David Koepp.

The film is said to have a feminist angle on the classic tale, which originally starred Elsa Lanchester and Boris Karloff in 1935.

Bill Condon In Talks To Direct The Bride Of Frankenstein

13 April 2017 7:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hot off the success of the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, which is now sitting at $1 billion at the worldwide box office, Bill Condon is in talks with Universal to direct their remake of The Bride of Frankenstein. The project is part of the studio’s new cinematic universe, one which features all of their classic monsters and kicks off shortly with the release of The Mummy. From there, we’ll also be getting The Invisible Man, Van Helsing, Creature from the Black Lagoon and many more.

On board to produce The Bride of Frankenstein are Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, with a script from David Koepp that apparently has “kind of a feminist bent to the new story.” The original, which released in 1935 and was directed by James Whale, is a classic of the genre and starred Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester. There’s no word yet on casting for the remake, »

‘The Mummy’ paints it black in newly released trailer

2 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The first time movie audiences were introduced to The Mummy was back in 1932. Played by Boris Karloff, the monster formed part of the now iconic Universal Monsters franchise. Now, almost a hundred years later the studio is once again being exhumed. The series looks to have had quite the face-lift as Tom Cruise will now take on the evil Egyptian, this time played by Sofia Boutella.

Directed by Alex Kurtzman, this will be a modern telling of the story and will see Cruise share the screen with Russell Crowe and Annabelle Wallis. Check out the latest trailer now:

As you can see, we really are a long way from the shuffle-and-moan days. This is a bang up to date Cruise action flick that has summer blockbuster written all over it. Kurtzman may be relatively new to the directing world, but he did write the Star Trek reboot, so he has »

Universal Monsters shared-universe movie Van Helsing will be written by Wrath Of The Titans scribe Dan Mazeau

Universal Studios’ ambitious shared-universe films featuring classic movie monsters manifests this summer with another reboot of The Mummy. That's set to star Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Russell Crowe. Now, though, we learn of the planned remake of Van Helsing, that has landed a new writer.
