Universal and Imagine to Revive Bride of Frankenstein
06.17.09 by REELZ
The Hollywood Reporter is saying on its Risky Biz Blog that Universal and Imagine Studios have plans to remake the 1935 classic Bride of Frankenstein, which starred Boris Karloff as "The Monster" and Elsa Lanchester as "The Monster's Bride."
The studios are apparently in talks with Neil Burger to direct the movie and write the screenplay with Dirk Wittenborn. Burger and Wittenborn collaborated on the script for The Lucky Ones, which Burger directed. Burger also wrote and directed The Illusionist and Interview with the Assassin.
The Bride of Frankenstein project represents just one in a series of Universal monster-movie remakes. Benicio Del Toro is starring in a remake of The Wolf Man coming out later this year and the studio also has plans for a new version of the 1954 classic Creature from the Black Lagoon.
