The Bride of Frankenstein, a classic Universal Horror film. The film was made 1935 and was directed by James Whale. Boris Karloff reprised his role as the monster and Elsa Lanchester played the Monsters bride. The whole point of this movie was to create a companion for the monster. I always found this movie fascinating for the fact that the she rejects the monster when she see's him. It was such a downer of an ending.
It brings me no joy to tell you that yes 'The Bride of Frankenstein' is going to be remade, re-imagined, rebooted or whatever you want to call it. Universal Picture and Ron Howards Imagine Entertainment are currently in talks with Neil Burger to write and direct the film. The one project that Burguer has made that I recognize is a little film called The Illusionist which was a film about a magician who uses his abilities to secure the love of a woman above his social standing. The movie starred Edward Norton, Paul iamatti, and Jessica Biel. If you haven't seen it you should check it out.
Burger seems like a decent enough filmmaker. Maybe he will be able to do the story some justice. With Brian Grazer and Sean Daniel Producing the film I see this turning out to be a very polished Hollywood movie. Universal is looking to reboot all of their old school monster films. They are currently working on getting 'Creature from th Black Lagoon', 'Frankenstein', 'The Invisible Man', and 'The Wolf Man' is getting ready to be released.
There is now stopping the remakes, it's going to happen. I guess the film is old enough to warrant a new movie, but still, why not create some new classic monsters for a future generation?
