Rupert Sanders Reportedly Circling VAN HELSING Reboot

After directing this year's Snow White And The Huntsman for Universal Pictures, Rupert Sanders is said to be in discussions with the studio to helm their Van Helsing reboot, which has Tom Cruise attached to star. Read on for more details.



A few months ago, it was reported that Tom Cruise was attached to star in Universal Pictures' planned reboot of the Van Helsing film franchise, which will be developed by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Star Trek, Transformers). Cruise is also set to produce the movie. The 2004 film, which starred Hugh Jackman as the vigilante monster hunter, grossed over $300M at the worldwide box office (despite very mediocre reviews), so it should come as no surprise that Universal are still interested in the property. Now, we have our first potential candidate to direct the reboot.

Twitch Film reports that director Rupert Sanders - who recently helmed the Kristen Stewart-starrer Snow White And The Huntsman for Universal - is said to be in "early and still relatively casual" discussions to direct Van Helsing, with both sides interested in the idea. The site also says that there's a good chance that the film will be Tom Cruise's next project (he's currently shooting Warner Bros.' All You Need Is Kill), so a director should be locked down fairly soon. Additionally, Sanders is rumored to be directing a Snow White And The Huntsman spin-off starring Chris Hemsworth.
