Universal monster films update: ‘Van Helsing’ ‘Creature From the Black Lagoon’ ‘Bride of Frankenstein’

The reboot of Universal’s Monsters Universe will arrive this summer, beginning with The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella, and fans get an update on other projects from producer Chris Morgan.

“Beyond The Mummy, we’re just developing… we’re kind of locking in on all of the scripts. Right now, it’s Bride of Frankenstein and Creature from the Black Lagoon and The Invisible Man, Van Helsing and The Wolfman,” said Morgan in an interview published by Film Beat.

There have not been a lot of news regarding these films, but Morgan could not/would not confirm that Van Helsing is next.

“Those things kind of go a pace, and Universal will… we’re in talks to kind of figure out what the next film to come out will be.”

Morgan offered insight into the “writer’s room,” and the team: “I’m just kind of, right now, we are producing and overseeing — Alex Kurtzman and I, our company has kind of joined together to oversee all of these films.”

“So we’re really just working with the writers, breaking the stories, figuring out ‘What is that first story that we’re going to tell about the Wolfman?'” Morgan added.

“It’s kind of critical to step in with the right foot, and to give people enough of an homage to the original, to make them complicated and dark characters, but to also kind of address our sentiments and a modern context, and let people feel like they’re seeing something fresh.”
