    Bride Of Frankenstein Remake Coming From A24

    To star Scarlett Johansson.

    "Universal Pictures’ dubious attempt to remake Bride of Frankenstein as part of the “Dark Universe” might be dead, but the concept of reimagining the idea of a reanimated “Bride” in the 21st century leads on—with Scarlett Johansson as the lead, no less. The news came late Thursday when A24 and Apple TV+ announced Johansson would star in The Bride, a modern reworking of one of the most potent ideas in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel.

    The new film, which will be directed by Sebastián Lelo, reimagines the story of the Bride’s creation as less the attempt to build a “Monster’s Mate”—as she is credited in the 1935 Bride of Frankenstein movie—and more a parable about a woman finding a sense of self-realization in the modern world. It’s so modern in fact that her creator will be a wealthy tech CEO who has fastened a lady out of raw materials exclusively for himself. The logline reads as follows:

    “A woman created to be an ideal wife—the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur—rejects her creator, and is forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. It is on the run that she finds her true identity, her surprising power, and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.”"

    Great, sounds like a two hour tampon commercial.

    Its got to be better than the recent The Mummy remake. What a piece of shit that film was... It's quite impressive how badly Universal has managed this series. I was rewatching the slightly older The Mummy ( the one from when Brendan Fraser was the brightest star in the Hollywood firmament) and that stands up as a totally respectable little adventure movie. That would have been a much better route to follow.

    That said I don't think there's anything intrinsically wrong with the concept above. Probably it will be awful (most things are after all) but you could totally write a decent screenplay if that was the synopsis you had to work from.

    It sounds like people are objecting to it on political grounds ("SJW" for example), which is pretty tedious. I mean, the film doesn't sound very good, but then neither does Dracula, Prisoner of Frankenstein, and I still like that mess!

    The 2017 Mummy was truly terrible, that's for sure!
