Dark Universe title card

Let’s face it, Universal’s Dark Universe was a very ambitious plan that no one really was on board for. Though contemporary takes on the classic Universal monsters sounded like a good idea on the surface, the results were anything but that. It all started with The Mummy, the Tom Cruise-starring vehicle that was supposed to launch the universe. The film performed well-below expectations, and what followed made things even worse for the potential universe. Bride of Frankenstein, directed by Bill Condon and starring Javier Bardem as the Monster and possibly Angelina Jolie as the title character, had been put on hold. Reports stated that it was to fix some of the script issues. While that may be true, it was a sign that things weren’t going well. And this latest bit may be the final nail in the coffin.

According to a new report, the Dark Universe may be dead as key figures like Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are now leaving it behind, forcing Universal to rethink the interconnected monster world that they are creating. More on the story below.

Jekyll & Hyde

With a new 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, two new Sherlock Holmes, and various other new movies based on classic literature on the way, it should come as no shock that a new movie based on the Robert Louis Stevenson novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is on the way. The project already has Keanu Reeves lined up to star, and Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road) penning the script.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde tells the tale of a doctor who discovers a way to alter himself, allowing his evil, inner-self the ability to take over in vicious fashion. The story deals heavily along the lines of split personality disorders, but in a much more physical, visible, and scary way.

The story has appeared many, many times in stage and screen adaptations — a true testament to the simple and unique-yet brilliant creation of Robert Louis Stevenson. Two unfortunate appearances of the character were in recent lackluster films such as Van Helsing and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
