Within the latest story about director Justin Lin potential returning to the Fast & Furious franchise for a multi-part conclusion to the action series, there's another revelation about one of Universal's other big franchise ambitions. The studio just released Dracula Untold last month, which is technically the first part of their reboot of the classic Universal Monsters series, which is being crafted as an interconnected cinematic universe of horror. They also just set the release date for the forthcoming remake of The Mummy, and an unknown monster movie reboot to follow in 2017, but now we know what that mystery film will be.
Deadline mentions that the next film in the Universal Monsters franchise reboot will be The Wolf Man, and the studio is looking at Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski to script the film. That's all the information available now, and since the film is still over two years away, there's plenty of time to wait for details to surface. I'm most interested to see how all these stories connect, and whether or not we'll get a film that will somehow bring them all together. It doesn't sound quite as easy as bringing a superhero team like The Avengers together, but there's a chance it could be cool.
