At the moment Alex Kurtzman (Transformers, Star Trek, The Amazing Spider-man) and Chris Morgan (The Fast And The Furious) are on board. First Universal Monster to get the modern treatment is The Mummy, pencilled in for 2016.

17 July 2014 5:02 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Even though Universal Pictures has several lucrative franchises, like "Fast and Furious," "Despicable Me," "Jason Bourne" and "Jurassic Park," the studio believes it has something just as valuable, which is its classic movie monsters. Those monsters include Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature Of The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, and The Mummy. Universal wants to take these creatures and create a movie plan similar to what Marvel has done with its superheroes.

Kurtzman wrote such films as "Transformers," "Star Trek" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." While Morgan is the writer behind five "Fast and Furious" installments.

Universal Reveal Plans to Launch Connected Universe Featuring Classic Movie Monsters

16 July 2014 6:35 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Universal Pictures is a studio light on franchises, hence why they’re moving ahead with a sequel to the underwhelming Bourne movie starring Jeremy Renner and have decided to team with Legendary Pictures for a sequel to box office flop, Pacific Rim. Of course, they still have the Fast & Furious movies, while Jurassic World looks set to introduce a whole new generation of moviegoers to that franchise.

Regardless, the studio has now made the smart decision to take advantage of their library of classic and iconic movie monsters which includes the likes of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature Of The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, and The Mummy.

It was revealed last night that, “Universal is now dedicating renewed resources and an unprecedented, far-reaching commitment to revitalize its monster heritage.” In order to do this, they’ve enlisted the help of Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan »

'Classic Universal Monsters' Relaunch Coming from 'Spider-Man' and 'Fast & Furious' Writers

16 July 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal Pictures has brought on Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan to develop a widespread cinematic universe that will connect a number of the studio's classic monster franchises, such as Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, The Wolf Man and many more.

It isn't clear yet if Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Transformers, The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and Chris Morgan (Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, Fast & Furious 7) will write the projects themselves, but the filmmakers will reportedly start scouring for talent soon to bring this massive initiative to life.

The studio has pulled from its extensive library for individual titles such as The Mummy, Van Helsing, The Wolfman and this fall's Dracula Untold, but this is the first time Universal wants to create a universe with all of the characters under the same cinematic roof.

The first project to launch this endeavor will be the Untitled Mummy Reboot, which is already »

Universal Plans Monsters Shared Universe

16 July 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

If comic book heroes can have shared universes, why can't classic monsters? Universal Pictures has announced major plans to revitalize its heritage by developing a "substantial new production endeavor that will expand and unify a network of classic characters and stories".

In layman's terms, it means its library of monster movie properties - Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature Of The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, and The Mummy - are about to get a shared onscreen universe deal akin to the Marvel Studios films.

"Star Trek," "Transformers" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" co-scribe Alex Kurtzman along with "Wanted" and regular "Fast and the Furious" series scribe Chris Morgan are the architects behind the interconnected slate, though it's unclear if either will write any of the projects planned.

Morgan and Kurtzman will work closely the studio's various arms to support the revival. They will also reevaluate projects »

Universal Preparing to Turn Their Classic Monsters into a Marvel-esque 'Cinematic Universe'

16 July 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The first rumblings that Universal would be seeking out Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to develop a remake of The Mummy began in September 2012 with Len Wiseman (Underworld) in talks to direct a script from Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). Now Orci and Kurtzman have split and Kurtzman remains on the project, Wiseman is no longer attached and Chris Morgan (Fast Five screenwriter) now involved, though to what capacity is unclear, though it does seem as if Spaihts' script is out the window. Even more than all of that, the goal is to not only reboot The Mummy, but to create a "cinematic universe" surrounding Universal's classic monsters, which also includes Dracula, Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Wolf Man, Phantom of the Opera and The Invisible Man. You know, the new Marvel formula of creating a universe so as to ensure one hit leads to several. It »

16 July 2014 2:14 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last year, we reported that Universal had hired Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman to create a crossover universe employing the studios famous monsters such as Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula, The Mummy, et al.  But a few months ago, Orci and Kurtzman dissolved their long partnership, and have gone their separate ways.  However, Universal still wants their Avengers-style crossover world featuring the studio's treasured creatures, and has now brought on Chris Morgan to team up with Kurtzman on the project.  Morgan is a favorite at the studio having written the scripts for every Fast & Furious movie since Tokyo Drift, which is good because when I go to a Fast & Furious movie, it's because of the screenwriting.

Universal Eyeing Alex Kurtzman And Chris Morgan To Relaunch Classic Movie Monster Franchises

16 July 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though modern audiences probably know Universal most for its Despicable Me, Fast & Furious and Jurassic Park franchises, the studio actually holds the rights to many much older franchises centered on classic movie monsters now considered to be old relics. I’m talking Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, the Creature From The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, The Mummy and more. Though Universal did attempt to breathe new life into one of those icons with The Wolf Man back in 2010, the film came off as a haphazardly constructed creature feature with great make-up and a thin story, and it didn’t open any doors for the studio.

Now, however, Universal is taking another swing at bringing back its movie monsters, developing a new production endeavor that will be devoting to revitalizing several of those classic creatures. Today, it was revealed that the studio has tapped Alex Kurtzman and »

Before their recent professional parting of the ways, Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman were slated to produce a reboot of The Mummy and Van Helsing for Universal Pictures. At the time there were rumblings that there might be a plan to use the various classic movie monster franchises from Universal's rich history to create some kind of universe akin to Marvel's lead-up to The Avengers. Orci said, "There's an interesting thing that could happen at Universal where they have this amazing library of their old monsters and these kinds of heroes, and the idea of trying to create a universe." Now those plans are coming together. However, Orci is no longer involved in this endeavor. Instead, Deadline reports Alex Kurtzman will team with Fast & Furious franchise writer Chris Morgan to produce and develop reboots of Universal's most revered movie monsters like Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature Of The Black Lagoon, »

'Edge of Tomorrow' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About Tom Cruise's Latest Sci-Fi Romp

4 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last weekend was kind of a lull in the summer movie death match. Sure, Disney's mega-budgeted "Maleficent" and whatever "A Million Ways to Die in the West" was supposed to be opened wide, but neither one was exactly a juggernaut worthy of the bloody gladiatorial race. (And, somewhat predictably, their box office numbers bore this out.)

This week, there are a couple of new contestants: "The Fault in Our Stars," a Ya melodrama starring Shailene Woodley as a young cancer patient, and "Edge of Tomorrow," starring Tom Cruise in a nifty "Groundhog Day"-meets-"Starship Troopers" plot that has Cruise falling victim to an intergalactic time loop that allows him to die, again and again, on a battlefield against an invading army race. (Emily Blunt is a fellow warrior who has suffered similar effects.)

This is Cruise's second sci-fi movie in a row, following last year's big-budget video art installation "Oblivion, »
