    Bride of Frankenstein Reboot (TBA)

    Bride of Frankenstein’ Reboot to Be Written by David Koepp (EXCLUSIVE)

    David Koepp will write Universal’s remake of “Bride of Frankenstein” as the studio continues to make strides in forming its new monster universe.

    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.

    Universal’s exec VP of production, Jon Mone, and VP of production, Jay Polidoro, will oversee the project for the studio.

    Sources tells Variety that Universal wants to offer Angelina Jolie Pitt directing and starring gigs in “Bride of Frankenstein.” The studio has had their eye on Jolie Pitt for some time, but she will remain undecided on whether she takes on the project until a script is delivered.

    Koepp’s relationship with Universal dates back to the 1990s when the studio assigned him the job of penning the first “Jurassic Park.” He has helped launched other major franchises since then, including “Mission: Impossible” and “Spider-Man” with Tobey Maguire.

    Koepp most recently penned the next Robert Langdon pic, “Inferno,” which bows next fall with Tom Hanks returning to star as Langdon. He is repped by CAA, and Myman Greenspan Fineman Fox Rosenberg & Light LLP.
    Jolie would be a pretty cool pick for this movie, With Koepp being part of this it can only be a positive thing.

    Much like with DC, I'd be much more comfortable about these Universal remake/boot/imagining's if they concentrated on one at a time and making sure they actually have an audience to sell to... but more Angelina Jolie-Pitt in my eyes is always a plus.
