Simply once we thought we had lastly escaped Common’s Darkish Universe, these rattling public area monsters simply pulls us proper again in. Simply a few weeks after director Leigh Whannell remade The Invisible Man with Elisabeth Moss and a brand new well timed tone for the horror maestros at Blumhouse, the studio is coming again with a brand new tackle Dracula from Destroyer and Jennifer’s Physique director Karyn Kusama. This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which says its sources declare that the brand new Dracula will observe The Invisible Man’s lead with a modern-day setting and that it’s going to most certainly land at Common (the studio hasn’t picked it up but, but it surely has a first-look cope with Blumhouse and THR says it “isn’t about to let one among its iconic monsters escape the fold”). Kusama’s Dracula may also most likely have a extra affordable price range than Common’s final Dracula film, 2014’s Game Of Thrones-y epic with Luke Evans, which appears to be the important thing with tasks like this.
The information of a brand new Dracula comes only a few days after we heard that James Wan was engaged on a really Frankenstein-sounding horror film for Common. Plus there’s the monster factor Paul Feig is doing… for Common. And the Invisible Lady film that Elizabeth Banks is making… for Common (which is by some means fully unrelated to Elisabeth Moss’ Invisible Man). And the Dracula-related horror film that Dexter Fletcher and Robert Kirkman are making… for Common. However please, no one leap to any conclusions and say something about some sort of Darkish Universe the place Common can revitalize all of its outdated monster characters and produce them collectively for some sort of team-up film. That’s not going to occur. Wink.
No, critically, it’s not. The Darkish Universe is as useless as Rely Dracula, who by no means comes again to life regardless that it actually appeared like he was useless.
