Universal Sets 'Bride of Frankenstein' for 2019

Universal has announced a series of reboots of its classic monster movies, dubbing it the ‘Dark Universe.’ The series begins with ‘The Mummy’ starring Tom Cruise, and will feature crossovers between the monsters.  

The next film in the series to hit theaters will be ‘Bride of Frankenstein’ on Feb. 14, 2019 and will be directed by Bill Condon.

“I’m very excited to bring a new Bride of Frankenstein to life on screen, particularly since James Whale’s original creation is still so potent,” Condon said in a statement accompanying the announcement. “The Bride of Frankenstein remains the most iconic female monster in film history, and that’s a testament to [James] Whale’s masterpiece — which endures as one of the greatest movies ever made.”

There is no word yet on who will star in the film.
