Universal’s VAN HELSING Reboot Enlists A Pair Of Writers

It sounds like Universal's monster cinematic universe is a go. A new report has revealed that the studio has signed two writers to pen their long-rumored Van Helsing reboot. Come check it out!

Variety is reporting Universal has signed Jon Spaihts (Doctor Strange) and Eric Heisserer (Hours) to co-write their upcoming Van Helsing reboot, which will build upon their still-developing classic monsters universe. Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are on-board as producers.

Plot details remain scarce as do details on the shared monster movie universe, but what we do know is that a reboot of The Mummy will launch the universe when it hits theaters in 2017.

The Van Helsing character was last seen on screen in the hit 2004 film of the same name, which starred Hugh Jackman (Wolverine 3) as the titular vampire hunter and Kate Beckinsale (Underworld 5) as his ill-fated lady love. At one point, Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) was attached to the reboot, but according to Variety reporter Justin Kroll, that is unsurprisingly no longer the case.
