James Wan to Produce Universal Monster Film

Just like that, the Universal Monsters have resurged thanks to the breakout success of The Invisible Man and now director James Wan is coming on board to produce a monster film of his own for the studio according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Set to be created under Wan’s Atomic Monster banner, writer for Supernatural Robbie Thompson will pen the screenplay.

Although it is currently without a title, it is being said the story revolves around teenagers who discover their neighbor is creating a monster in his basement which gets loose.

No start date has been set but one can guess Universal wants to get their monster films on the fast track as soon as possible.

Check back soon for more updates.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
