Well… there’s certainly not a lot to go on here, but Deadline is reporting that Universal has added a third untitled monster franchise movie from Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan to its schedule, set for the 2019 Presidents’ Day Weekend, Friday, February 15th. This follows The Mummy starring Tom Cruise and directed by Kurtzman on June 9, 2017 and another untitled monster film on April 13, 2018.
This probably means that either the 2018 or 2019 date will be designated to Uni’s reboot of The Invisible Man starring Johnny Depp. The Invisible Man was released in 1933 and starred Claude Rains as a scientist who finds a way to become invisible. James Whale, who was behind Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, directed.
Re-igniting Uni’s monster library has become a priority for Chairman Donna Langley, and the studio has booked two A-listers in Cruise and Depp. Stay tuned for more as it comes!
