Universal is pulling out all the stops to reboot its new era of monster movies!
Last month, it was reported that the studio was in talks with Tom Cruise to produce and star in a Mummy remake — which would launch an Avengers-style multi-verse and have cross-over capabilities with other monster movies!
And Universal has already been trying to woo another A-list actor to step to take the leading role of Bride of Frankenstein: Angelina Jolie Pitt!
The By The Sea writer-director-star has been rumored to be in talks to star and direct the film about the undead newlywed, and execs are doing all they can to charge up her enthusiasm!

Most recently, Universal tapped legendary writer David Koepp to pen the script of the remake — whose past work includes writing Spider-Man, Jurassic Park, Mission: Impossible, and War Of The Worlds!
Angie is supposedly waiting to read the script before she makes her decision. If all goes well for the studio, Koepp will craft a script so brilliant that she'll just have to say yes!
We're not sure how we feel about a multi-verse of monster movies yet, but we think Jolie could do amazing things with this role!
What do YOU think about the monstrous movies to come?
