THIS RESULT TO ANGELINA JOLIE MAYBE DROPPING THE TITLE ROLE.
Universal delays production of Bride of Frankenstein. The production was supposed to start this February in London. However, director Bill Condon reasons out that he and screenwriter David Koepp want to rework the script to better reflect their vision. Because of this, the movie no longer has a February 14, 2019 release date.
“After thoughtful consideration, Universal Pictures and director Bill Condon have decided to postpone ‘Bride of Frankenstein,’” the studio said in a statement on Thursday. “None of us want to move too quickly to meet a release date when we know this special movie needs more time to come together. Bill is a director whose enormous talent has been proven time and again, and we all look forward to continuing to work on this film together.” The film will be a period piece.
The actors attached to the project includes Javier Bardem as Frankenstein’s monster and Angelina Jolie is in talks to play the title character. According to sources, Bardem is dedicated to the role, but Jolie is unsure. Scheduling may be in conflict since she is currently attached to reprise her role in the sequel to “Maleficent,” which is expected to begin production in early 2018 now that it’s tapped director Joachim Ronning.
According to the director, if Jolie will not go through with the role, he wants Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot to step in.
