THE INVISIBLE MAN Producer Jason Blum Is Open To Bringing FRANKENSTEIN Back To The Big Screen Next

The Invisible Man has been Blumhouse's most successful horror remake in quite some time (critically, at least), and Jason Blum has now revealed that he's open to revisiting other classic movie monsters...

The Invisible Man has been a huge critical success for Blumhouse (you can read our review by clicking here), but it now sounds like the prolific producer is setting his sights on a new take on Frankenstein. That's a franchise which has been rebooted countless times over the years, but a modern update similar to The Invisible Man might be exactly what it needs. 

"I'd love to do Frankenstein. I've tasked our filmmakers with trying to figure out just straight Frankenstein," Blum confirmed during a recently interview with The Evolution of Horror. "Again, I don't know if someone else is doing it, I don't know anything about it, but I would love to try, and I'm waiting for the great idea."
 
"The Invisible Man, I agree, the best ideas feel like, 'My gosh, it's so obvious -- why didn't that happen before?'" he continued. "If we could come up with something as good for Frankenstein, I'd love to try that."
 
Now that Universal Pictures is no longer moving forward with a shared "Dark Universe," there's definitely more freedom for standalone stories that deliver fresh new takes on iconic movie monsters. It's previously been reported that the studio wants a Bride of Frankenstein film. 

Time will tell what comes next for this Monster-verse, but after flops like Dracula Untold and The Mummy, it's definitely a relief to see things back on the right track after The Invisible Man
