Universal is still aiming to build its Dark Universe with the upcoming Invisible Man. Reportedly, they may be looking to court the Bride of Frankenstein next.
We’ve seen several versions of the mummy, the wolfman, and even the invisible man on the big screen. One iconic character whose yet to make their transition to a live-action horror flick of their own is the Bride of Frankenstein.
A big reason for that is due to Universal Pictures’ proposed “Dark Universe” tanking at the box office with their huge blockbuster film, The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, woefully underperforming both audiences and critics.
Surprisingly, Universal hasn’t abandoned ship. Instead, they’ve restructured their Dark Universe and gone in a new direction, such as with the upcoming horror film, The Invisible Man, starring Elisabeth Moss.
The movie had a low-budget and is expected to open with a strong box office debut. Things appear to slowly be getting back on track with the Dark Universe, does that mean a Bride of Frankenstein movie could actually be on the horizon?

Per a recent article by Variety, it could very well come to fruition. Right now, it looks like producer Amy Pascal is the frontrunner to bring the character to life in a new movie.
A Quiet Place director John Krasinski has also been rumored to have tinkered with a potential script for the film as well.
At the moment, it remains unclear who will serve as the main producer on the project but all signs are pointing to Pascal. In the past, Angelina Jolie was reportedly very interested in the project but supposedly has moved on over the years since the film didn’t show any signs of getting off the ground until now.
Most likely, the final decision will depend on how The Invisible Man performs later this month.
