Universal Is Still Trying To Make Its DARK UNIVERSE Happen As Work On BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN Continues

Despite the fact that its first two Dark Universe movies bombed, Universal Pictures is still trying to make the Dark Universe happen and it appears that work on Bride of Frankenstein is commencing...

Last year, we heard that Universal Pictures is going back to the drawing board with its Dark Universe after both Dracula Untold and The Mummy bombed. As a result, Bill Condon's remake of Bride of Frankenstein was put on hold while work on the script continued but a new report reveals that pre-production will likely resume soon as a production team for the project is currently being assembled. 

That is said to include Tobias A. Schliessler (A Wrinkle In Time), production designer Sarah Greenwood (Beauty and The Beast), composer Carter Burwell (No Country For Old Men), and costume designer Jacqueline Durran (Beauty and The Beast). It's an impressive team and rumour has it that Javier Bardem is still set to appear as Frankenstein's monster. There's no word on the bride, though. 

It was previously reported that Angelina Jolie would take on that role but she's likely to be busy with Maleficent 2. What the future holds in store for the rest of the Dark Universe also isn't clear and it could be quite a while before we find out more. Bride of Frankenstein was previously set to be released in theaters on February 14th, 2019, a date it vacated last year just as Gambit did earlier this month.
