BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN Director Reportedly Wants WONDER WOMAN's Gal Gadot For The Lead If Jolie Exits

Universal has pressed pause on Bride of Frankenstein, leaving prospective star Angelina Jolie's commitment in question - however, we're now hearing that Bill Condon has a wondrous replacement in mind...

Last night, we found out that Universal had paused pre-production on the planned Bride of Frankenstein remake in order to work on the script, leaving Javier Bardem and Angelina Jolie's commitment to the lead roles up in the air for the time being.

However, if the latter does ultimately decide not to sign on to play the monstrous bride of the title, it sounds like director Bill Condon is already thinking about a potential replacement.

According to The Wrap, Condon wants Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, to step into the role if Jolie walks away. Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean the highly in-demand actress would have any interest in boarding such a troubled franchise when she's already committed to The DCEU.

Many believe this is actually the death knell for the Dark Universe, and if the studio's mandate for the rebooted series of horror properties is accurate, it's not difficult to see why. "They wanted these to work as PG-rated action movies/theme-park rides, not horror movies,” explains The Wrap's insider. “Basically ‘Fast and the Furious’ meets ‘The Avengers’ – but with super monsters.“

If Jolie were to drop out, do you think Gadot would make a good Bride of Frankenstein? Sound off in the usual place.
