By this point it’s common knowledge that Universal has their own cinematic shared universe to build using the IP of their classic monsters (which means we can technically also refer to this as an MCU too). While I haven’t seen their recent film Dracula Untold, it’s my understanding that it’s only tangentially connected to the main series of films being developed by producers/writers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan. Kurtzman will actually be directing The Mummy from a script credited to John Spaihts and Billy Ray, which will hit theaters on June 24, 2016. So this new project, currently going by Untitled Universal Monster Franchise Film, will obviously focus on one of the other monsters in at their disposal (with an appearance by The Mummy I would guess if they’re planning on hitting the ground running with the shared universe concept).
But which monster? I’m not sure! What’s interesting (and maybe a little alarming) is how intent they are into making these into action movies. Hit the jump for more on the Untitled Universal Monster Franchise Film, which is currently dated for Friday, April 27th, 2017.
