"Bride Of Frankenstein" Updates



Oscar winner Bill Condon ("Gods and Monsters") is now confirmed to direct Universal's horror reboot " Bride Of Frankenstein", opening February 14, 2019, as part of  the studio's  'Dark Universe':


"...'Mary Shelley', author of 'Frankenstein', 'The Modern Prometheus', reveals to 'Percy Shelley' and 'Lord Byron' that 'Henry Frankenstein' and his 'Monster' did not die. Both lived, and went on to even stranger misadventures than before. 


"As Shelley's story unfolds, we see that Henry wants nothing more than to settle into a peaceful life with his new bride.


"But his old professor, the now disgraced 'Dr. Pretorius', appears unexpectedly. 


"Eventually, he and the Monster blackmail Henry to build a 'friend' for his ghoulish creature..."


The original "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935) was a sequel to Universal's "Frankenstein" (1931), both directed by James Whale.


Condon's "Gods and Monsters" (1998) focused on the final days of director Whale.
