6 Oct – Production on the remake of 1935 horror classic "Bride of Frankenstein" has been put on hold.
Deadline broke the news stating that despite pre-production having already taken place in London for the filming that was to begin on 1 February 2018, now all crew has been informed to go home instead.
"After thoughtful consideration, Universal Pictures and director Bill Condon have decided to postpone "Bride of Frankenstein"," the studio revealed.
The studio seems to be more cautious with its Dark Universe banner after Tom Cruise-starrer "The Mummy", which launched the monster program, disappoints with its USD80 million collection at the domestic box office.
A banner that is set to reinvent the studio's classic monsters into modern cinema, Dark Universe has previously revealed its plan for the remake of several iconic movies including "The Hunchback of Notre Dame", "The Phantom of the Opera", "Dracula" and "Invisible Man", which Johnny Depp will star in.
