Bride of Frankenstein (February 14, 2019) (Part of Universal’s ‘Dark Universe’)

Post by WyldeMan on 5/22/2017, 12:02 pm

Universal has dated “Bride of Frankenstein” for Feb. 14, 2019, with Bill Condon on board to direct.

The pic is the studio’s second entry in its newly announced “Dark Universe,” which kicks off with “The Mummy” — Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella — on June 9.

The studio has also announced a logo for the new initiative (pictured above). A musical theme for “Dark Universe” composed by Danny Elfman and will debut in theaters preceding “The Mummy.”

The enterprise is relaunching Universal’s iconic characters into modern cinema. While “The Mummy” and “Bride of Frankenstein” are the only two films in the initiative to be dated, the studio is currently developing “The Invisible Man” with Johnny Depp set to star, and a “Frankenstein” film with Javier Bardem on board to play the classic monster. “Van Helsing” and “Creature From the Black Lagoon” films are also planned.

“Dark Universe” was begun by core creatives Alex Kurtzman, who serves as director and producer of “The Mummy,” and “The Mummy” producer Chris Morgan. Also joining the enterprise to inspire and entertain a new generation are such talents as Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie and David Koepp.

As for “The Bride of Frankenstein,”Angelina Jolie had been linked to the project for some time but insiders say scheduling will play a factor on her starring in the pic’s title role.

“I’m very excited to bring a new Bride of Frankenstein to life on screen, particularly since James Whale’s original creation is still so potent,” stated Condon. “The Bride of Frankenstein remains the most iconic female monster in film history, and that’s a testament to Whale’s masterpiece—which endures as one of the greatest movies ever made.”

Good God no.

This whole universe is going to tank.

They need to piss off these gigantic budget and big movie star ideas, and create a low budget universe. Think of all these low budget Blumhouse horror flicks - cheap, and generally make a shit-tonne of money (relative to their budgets). That's what they need to do with this "Dark Universe".

They're going to The Mummy all of them and turn them into stupid action blockbusters, when the content doesn't suit it. They could easily make cheap horror flicks with these old-timey horror characters - characters which will have limited appeal to a modern audience via generic summer blockbuster. They need to bring the scares.

Universal absolutely should have been a low budget Blum style HORROR franchise but all studios wants are action franchises now. Look at the Resident Evil reboot, it's being done as an action franchise again. It's like they have no concept of their own ideas, there is a reason that after 80 years the original universal horror films are still classics and these new films will be forgotten after opening weekend. To much focus on crossover and explosions, two things that have very little interest to me.
