The Mummy Director Isn’t Worried About The Poor Reception

10 June 2017 3:38 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Mummy, Universal and Alex Kurtzman’s star-studded reboot that hit theatres this week, is hoping to kick off a brand new franchise for the studio. Its name? Dark Universe, an interwoven collection of creature features that will, through time, bring together the likes of The Invisible Man and Frankenstein’s Monster, among others. Dead Men Tell No Tales duo Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem will play each of those iconic monsters, respectively, but in the case of The Mummy, Kingsman breakout Sofia Boutella has been crowned Princess Ahmanet.

Once in line to become a Pharaoh, Boutella’s goddess is robbed of her right to rule by her deceitful father and buried alive within the catacombs of Egypt. Fast forward to the present day and it’s Tom Cruise’s military man Nick Morton who stumbles upon said crypt, before accidentally unleashing an otherworldly terror of biblical proportions.

Matt Edwards Jun 5, 2017

Alex Kurtzman chats to us about The Mummy, Univeral's Dark Universe of films, and writing for Michael Bay.

The Mummy (2017) is directed by Alex Kurtzman. We were interested enough in chatting to the director of The Mummy, but Kurtzman has a fascinating CV, having worked on several high profile films and TV series as a writer and producer with Roberto Orci, including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Star Trek (2009), Fringe and the first two Michael Bay Transformers movies.

Den of Geek sat down with Kurtzman to chat about his experience making The Mummy and the upcoming Dark Universe, the collection of linked Universal Monster movies that he’ll be working on, and what it was like to work with Michael Bay.

When did you come onto The Mummy?

Oscar winner Bill Condon ("Gods and Monsters") is now confirmed to direct Universal's horror reboot " Bride Of Frankenstein", opening February 14, 2019, as part of  the studio's  'Dark Universe':

"...'Mary Shelley', author of 'Frankenstein', 'The Modern Prometheus', reveals to 'Percy Shelley' and 'Lord Byron' that 'Henry Frankenstein' and his 'Monster' did not die. Both lived, and went on to even stranger misadventures than before. 

"As Shelley's story unfolds, we see that Henry wants nothing more than to settle into a peaceful life with his new bride.

"But his old professor, the now disgraced 'Dr. Pretorius', appears unexpectedly. 

"Eventually, he and the Monster blackmail Henry to build a 'friend' for his ghoulish creature..."

The original "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935) was a sequel to Universal's "Frankenstein" (1931), both directed by James Whale.

Condon's "Gods and Monsters" (1998) focused on the final days of director Whale.

Newswire: Bill Condon may bring Bride Of Frankenstein to a new world of franchises and reboots

14 April 2017 11:54 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

According to Deadline, Universal Pictures is in talks with director Bill Condon to turn James Whale’s Bride Of Frankenstein—the greatest, most ingeniously strange, and most self-reflexive of all classic monster movies—into a franchise tentpole that will presumably run two-and-a-half hours and have no ending. Admittedly, this terrible idea has a better pedigree than most terrible ideas that come out of Hollywood. For one, the screenplay for the new Bride Of Frankenstein is being penned by David Koepp, the screenwriter of Jurassic Park, Carlito’s Way, Panic Room, and, of course, The Shadow. For another, Condon—despite his recent box-office success with an overlong and unnecessary remake of a widely beloved film, which probably got these negotiations started—first had his breakthrough with Gods And Monsters, a fictionalized drama about Whale. (The title, of course, comes from a famous quote from Bride Of Frankenstein.) The film won Condon »

13 April 2017 8:43 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Bill Condon recently brought an iconic creature to life on the big screen in the live-action Beauty and the Beast movie, and with that film passing the $1 billion milestone at the global box office, the filmmaker could be entering the world of Universal Monsters for his next project.

Deadline reports that Condon is in "early talks" to direct a new Bride of Frankenstein movie for Universal Pictures.

No official deal has been made, but Deadline reveals that both sides are "excited" about teaming up for the film, which would join the upcoming The Mummy (hitting theaters June 9th), the in-the-works Creature from the Black Lagoon, and other projects (including one on Van Helsing) that are part of the revamped Universal Monsters shared cinematic world.

It's also worth noting that The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) is one of Condon's most-loved classic monster films, according to Deadline. The original film starred Elsa Lanchester »

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, »

Why Ian McKellen Didn't Want to Play Dumbledore in Harry Potter

4 April 2017 12:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While most fans of the Harry Potter movie franchise would associate the actor Michael Gambon with the iconic headmaster Albus Dumbledore, famed British actor Richard Harris originated the role. He appeared in the first two movies, 2001's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and 2002's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, before passing away in the fall of 2002, just weeks before Chamber of Secrets hit theaters. While Michael Gambon took over the role for the next six movies, another iconic big screen wizard could have played the role, Ian McKellen. The actor revealed during a BBC HardTalk interview that he was approached to take over for Richard Harris, but there was a very good reason why he didn't do so.

During his appearance on HardTalk, which recently surfaced on YouTube, interviewer Stephen Sackur mentioned that there was a time where Richard Harris himself criticized fellow British actors Ian McKellen, »

7 Filmmaking Tips from Bill Condon

22 March 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

How to make movies that win awards and break box office records.

Forget Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh. Bill Condon’s career really began with Gods and Monsters, for which he won the adapted screenplay Oscar. He would go on to receive another writing nomination, for Chicago, and over the past 15 years he’s directed award-worthy performances, some of them surprises, he’s drawn non-Twilight fans into that franchise, and he just released what’s looking to be the most successful musical of all time.

Obviously, after the massive opening weekend Condon had with Beauty and the Beast, he’s a filmmaker worth looking up to. He hasn’t always delivered hits or Academy favorites, but the director of such movies as Dreamgirls, Mr. Holmes, Kinsey, The Fifth Estate, and both parts of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is a distinct talent in Hollywood, one who regularly makes a kind of pop prestige picture, or »
