After the enormous success of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, director Bill Condon is in talks to helm a different kind of love story! Universal wants him for its Bride of Frankenstein remake. Deadline reports that he is close to reaching a deal with the studio to direct a modern version of what he has called his favorite Universal Monsters film in previous interviews.
Beauty and the Beast is currently the highest grossing film of 2017, in both the domestic and worldwide marketplaces. It just broke the $1 billion mark worldwide, and there’s still gas in the tank; so it’s no wonder Universal is eyeing Condon to take on its own “tale as old as time.”
