Netflix Reportedly Backs Off From Airing ‘The Bride’

by Thomas Tuna

The Bride has been left at the altar.

Earlier this month, it was reported that The Bride–a planned reboot to the 1935 classic Bride of Frankenstein–would debut on Netflix. But now it seems that the streamer has begged off the deal, according to World of Reel.

The project reportedly is still in the pipeline–expecting to start production during the first quarter of 2024–but it’s now being shopped elsewhere. Obviously, no release window has been announced.

The Bride–with Maggie Gyllenhaal in the director’s chair–reportedly will still boast genre luminaries Christian Bale and Peter Sarsgaard in leading roles. Plot details have not yet been revealed.

The original Bride of Frankenstein–directed by James Whale from a screenplay by William Hurlbut–is (as all horror fans know) the sequel to 1931’s iconic Frankenstein, and is considered by many to actually be superior to the original horror classic.
