After a disappointing performance in theaters where it failed to bring in the box office numbers they were hoping for, The Mummy director and one of Universal’s Dark Universe architects Alex Kurtzman is unsure if he will remain part of the expansive project.
During an interview with IGN during the Television Critics Association summer press tour, Kurtzman was asked if he is still part of the Dark Universe, to which he replied, “You know, the truth is I don’t know. I really don’t know. I haven’t really decided. Is the honest answer.”
He continued talking about how each film will have its own flavor, saying, “I think every movie will be different. I certainly know that the legacy of the Monsters have endured across the world throughout the years. Almost a century. So I have to believe American audiences will find it, too, with the right ingredients.”
As of now, the next film in the series will be Bill Condon’s The Bride of Frankenstein, which is slotted for a February 14, 2019, release date.
