Universal Adds Two More Monsters To Their Dark Universe

07 Juin, 2017, 12:39 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

"The Mummy" is the first of the Universal Monsters Universe collection of films to get a modern reboot. Javier Bardem has been tapped to star as Frankenstein's monster.

The two newly announced reboots are set to unite with, Alex Kurtzman's The Mummy, Bill Condon's Bride of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, Dracula, and Creature from the Black Lagoon. Either way, expect to see Michael Fassbender turn up in one of these Dark Universe films in the coming years.

What do you think of these newest inclusions to the vast Dark Universe and which movies would you like to see added in the future?

Additionally, Kurtzman said that the studio is open to widening their boundaries when it comes to monster movies, expressing that they will not limit the "Dark Universe" to household names and that supporting characters in their "monster" films may be used for spin-offs.

"There are characters within those films that can grow and expand and maybe even spin off", he told the site. Universal will likely inject some supernatural elements into their stories so they make sense in a world filled with vampires and invisible men.

Disney fans are no doubt familiar with the animated version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, but both "Hunchback" and "Phantom" were some of the first monster movies produced by Universal in the 1920s.

Jolie has been mentioned as a favorite to play as Frankenstein's bride but negotiations have not been started.

Kurtzman said that they Dark Universe may not be exclusively populated by household name monsters. There was speculation that Dracula Untold, which starred Luke Evans, was going to be part of the monster universe, but it was never verified as the film did not do well at the box office.

Do you think bringing black and white horror classics will work for Universal's Dark Universe?
