The Bride Of Frankenstein may live again

Universal wants to resurrect another of its classic monsters – the Bride Of Frankenstein.

The studio, alongside production company Imagine, is negotiating with The Illusionist ’s co-writer/director Neil Burger to tackle a remake of James Whale’s horror tale.

If he makes a deal, Burger and writing partner Dick Wittenborn would likely rework the original film’s story, which saw the monster beg Dr F to create him a mate.

Sadly for our favourite walking dead thing, she rejects him at the end. Tch… girls.

Bride has been almost as difficult – it’s been in development for a whole now, with American Splendor duo Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini most recently attached to write a contemporary update about a girl dying and being brought back.

It remains to be seen if the film will be struck by the arcing bolts of greenlight power this time – but chances are the studio may wait to see how The Wolf Man performs this year.
