Bride of Frankenstein production shut down, for now

I can't say that I find this news the least bit surprising. But all the same, yes it's true. Universal has just shut down pre-production on director Bill Condon's upcoming reboot of BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

The flick was in pre-production in London and planned to begin shooting on February 1st. But then the studio showed up and told everyone to go home. For now. Including Javier Bardem and Angelina Jolie.

Meaning I guess she had been cast as the Bride after all?

Deadline is reporting that the current plan is to get the film back underway after some script work and even went so far as to venture a (no doubt spot-on) theory as to the film's new direction.

One word: IT

By that, they mean reworking the film for an R-rating and whatnot. And probably adding a clown. 

Are you even slightly surprised to hear this news? Make sure to let us know what you think in the new comments section below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN was supposed to hit theaters Valentine's Day 2018.
