Bride of Frankenstein

One of the more exciting remake projects in the ever-growing pile of remakes is the Guillermo del Toro remake of the classic monster movie, Frankenstein — a remake that looks to be slowly moving toward finally getting made with the announcement that del Toro regular Doug Jones is going to be playing the giant resurrected monster man (Read: Ian McKellen & Others Officially Returning In Guillermo del Toro’s ‘The Hobbit’; ‘Frankenstein’ Casting Already Begun?). Now comes news that one of the first ever spinoff/sequels in Bride of Frankenstein (another project that’s been hovering around for a long time) is also moving forward again toward a remake treatment.

The movie, from Universal and Imagine Entertainment, is currently in looking into hiring Neil Burger to both write and direct the remake. Burger is best known for his job writing and directing the beautiful Edward Norton magician movie, The Illusionist. If Burger is officially signed, he and his writing partner Dirk Wittenborn would be the latest team to try and bring the movie to the big screen. Before this latest team has been pursued, American Splendor writers Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini had a draft in place which had the Bride character brought to life in modern day New York (surely a romantic comedy starring Reese Witherspoon), and Jacob Estes, who’s working on the Spider-Man spinoff Venom, had a go as well.

I’m not sure how to feel about this. While the old classic monster movies seem to be fair, acceptable remake content, I have trouble seeing why this one is being done. Am I alone there? Whether made or not, we can only hope that del Toro’s Frankenstein finds a way to get done and out before this one. It would be odd to see a new Bride of Frankenstein come out before a Frankenstein that really have no association with each other.
