Back in July this year, Universal Pictures confirmed that they are launching the Universal Monsters Shared Universe with the “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” writer and producer Alex Kurtzman, with “Fast & Furious 7” writer Chris Morgan in charge of the franchise.
A reboot of “The Mummy” is set to be released on June 24, 2016 with Kurtzman attached to direct. “Star Trek 3” director Roberto Orci was originally slated to produce a reboot of “The Mummy” and “Van Helsing” with Kurtzman, but it was later announced that he has already left the franchise.
The title and the cast for the reboot has not been announced yet but Universal Pictures has now scheduled another monster movie to be released on April 21, 2017.
It is unclear which Universal’s monsters movie will be released, but the iconic monsters including “Van Helsing”, Frankenstein”, “Dracula”, “The Wolfman”, “Creature Of The Black Lagoon”, “The Invisible Man”, and “Bride Of Frankenstein” are all set to return via Universal’s Monsters Shared Universe. Screenrant also reported that “Fargo” TV series creator Noah Hawley is set to write one of the Universal monster movies.
“Dracula Untold” is said to be the first movie in the Universal Monsters Shared Universe, especially with its ending that hinted at sequel. In fact, the film’s producer Alissa Phillips even revealed that the movie is indeed part of Universal’s Monsters Shared Universe.
Everything is kept under wraps, but which movie do you think they will reboot next? Which reboot will you look forward to watch the most?
