‘Bride Of Frankenstein’ Remake Inks Director, Two Cast Members

by Thomas Tuna

Here comes the bride.

It looks like one of the greatest sequels in horror cinema–Bride of Frankenstein–will finally get a reboot–and the director and two of the stars are now in place, according to Production Weekly.

The Bride--slated for an undetermined debut on Netflix–is expected to start shooting during the first quarter of 2024 with Maggie Gyllenhaal in the director’s chair and genre standouts Christian Bale (Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy) and Peter Sarsgaard (The Lost Daughter) in leading roles.

Plot details have yet to be revealed, so it’s unknown if the remake will stick closely to the 1935 original or branch out with new and different scenarios.

The original Bride of Frankenstein–directed by James Whale from a screenplay by William Hurlbut–is, of course, the follow-up to 1931’s Frankenstein that is considered by many horror fans to actually be superior to the original film.

Starring Boris Karloff, Elsa Lanchester and Colin Clive, the sequel picks up with Dr. Frankenstein and his creation still alive, and a mad scientist–Dr. Pretorius–kidnapping Frankenstein’s wife in order to force him to create a woman to be the monster’s companion.
