Bride of Frankenstein temporarily deadened

Image Universal had high hopes for their revived monster universe. "The Mummy" with Tom Cruise has earned a lot of negative reviews, which, however, did not stop her from earning more than $ 400 million worldwide. However, it is unlikely that the leadership of Universal assumed that the life of the Dark Universe could have ended before it really began. The Major even planned that the second in the series would be a remake of Bride of Frankenstein, which was set to premiere on February 14, 2019.

Just a few days ago, the director of the project, Bill Condon, admitted to reporters that he was going to start filming in February. Therefore, the news that the pre-production of Bride of Frankenstein had been postponed came as a surprise to many. According to the portal Deadline, the remake team has been disbanded, and Javier Bardem and Angelina Jolie, who planned to play the monster and Frankenstein's bride, respectively, are waiting for David Kepp ("Inferno") to make changes to the script.

“After careful thought, Universal Pictures and director Bill Condon decided to postpone Bride of Frankenstein. Nobody wants to rush to release the film on the scheduled date, when we know that we need more time for preparation ", - said representatives of the studio.


The source writes that while the filmmakers are trying to decide what Bride of Frankenstein should be like, leaning towards the idea of a creepy story with a possible R rating. The tonality of the picture raises many questions, since The Mummy was balancing on the verge of action and horror, and not always good.

Another reason for the delay may be Angelina Jolie's busyness. Recently, Joaquim Ronning agreed to lead the shooting of the second "Maleficent", scheduled for early 2018, and the Hollywood actress is going to return to the image of a witch. Either Universal will have to look for a new performer in a key role, or wait until Jolie is free. At the moment, Bride of Frankenstein, like the rest of the Dark Universe films, does not have a release date, and it is unclear which direction the franchise will take further.
