Universal’s Bride of Frankenstein gets David Koepp as writer…

December 20th, 2015 by Irwin Fletcher Comments


David Koepp is one of the biggest names in writing. He has been a respected figure for over two decades, and has written the script for such films as Spider-Man (2002), Mission: Impossible and Jurassic Park. He also directed Mordecai, but we won’t hold that against him.

However, in a recent report from Variety, it seems that he has now been tapped to write the upcoming, Bride of Frankenstein. The project has already garnered some attention, as Angelina Jolie is considering starring and, according to the article, directing the film as we reported a while ago (here).

The article went on to clarify that: “The film is part of the studio’s endeavor to expand and unify a network of classic monsters led by narrative architects Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan. Like so many of its current monster movies, plot details are under wraps. “Bride of Frankenstein” is set in the present day in order for the film’s characters to have cross-over capabilities with other monster movies”.

Overall, this project does sound more and more interesting as time goes on. While there is still very little known about the project, it certainly is shaping up to be an interesting film. Here’s hoping the film can live up to its impressive pedigree.
