Alex Kurtzman & Chris Morgan Tapped For Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe

Reported by Jay Cochran - 07:57 AM 2014.07.17



It is being reported that Universal Pictures is looking to launch a new cinematic universe based on their classic Hollywood horror and monster characters such as Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature Of The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Bride Of Frankenstein, and The Mummy. According to a report from Deadline that initiative will be led by architects Alex Kurtzman (Transformers, Star Trek and The Amazing Spider-Man) and Chris Morgan (Fast And The Furious).

"While Universal has selectively tapped its Movie Monster library for The Mummy, Van Helsing, The Wolfman, and the upcoming Dracula Untold, this will be the first time that the studio has formalized an approach to these classic characters in a cohesive, connected way rather than as a series of stand-alone projects by disparate filmmaking teams."

The first movie up will be a remake of The Mummy, which will be released April 22, 2016.
