Taking a page out of Marvel’s Avengers playbook, Universal is taking its rebooted monster franchises and bringing the all-new monster squad together for one Frankenstein-sized movie extravaganza!
Variety is reporting that Universal has dated an untitled monster movie for April 21, 2017. The film is the first to emerge from a planned series produced and overseen by the creative team of Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek) and Chris Morgan (Fast and Furious series).
Universal has already set a June 24, 2016, launch for its reboot of The Mummy with Kurtzman producing along with Sean Daniel and Roberto Orci.
The studio announced plans in July to create a Marvel-like cinematic universe around the studio’s classic monsters the Mummy, Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, the Invisible Man, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
