After the failure of The Mummy back in 2017, Universal’s “Dark Universe” came to an end before it even really began. But now that The Invisible Man is a box office success the studio is finally ready to bring more Universal Monsters back to life.
Today, we’ve learned that another new Universal Monster movie is in the works. So, which monster is it? It’s our favorite bloodsucker, Dracula. Like The Invisible Man, Dracula will have a modern spin and be set in the present day.
Karyn Kusama (Destroyer) will be in the director’s chair, THR reports. Blumhouse will be producing the movie penned by Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay, who have worked with Kusama on multiple films including Destroyer and The Invitation.
Back in November, we reported that a new Invisible Woman is on its way. Last week we reported that James Wan had signed on to produce a Universal Monster movie, but reports are coming in that Wan’s mysterious movie and Dracula are two separate projects.
Up till now, the most recent Dracula movie from Universal was 2014’s Dracula Untold starring Luke Evans, which earned $217 million worldwide.
