This was a remake I didn't see coming. Encouraged by the fact their Wolf Man remake is probably going to kick some fairly gory butt come release, Universal are digging through their horror archives for more horror icons to resurrect. In this case, it's Elsa Lanchester's extraordinary 'Bride of Frankenstein'
Apparently, Neil Burger ('The Illusionist') is set to direct and co-write this remake with Dirk Wittenborn. Brian Grazer, producer of 'Angels and Demons' and a LOT of other much better films, is of course producing this particular film.
It's cool, but I'm a tad befuddled as to why they're remaking the sequel as opposed to the original. Perhaps Kenneth Branagh killed it in 1994 with his version? Who knows, still, I would have liked to see a version of 'Frankenstein' before seeing a remake of 'Bride', simply because I think the pathos of the entire film and the mental conditions of all of the characters are influenced pretty enormously by the events in the film that preceded it. anyone else agree with me?
