Paul Feig Still “Obsessed” With Making ‘Dark Army’

by Thomas Tuna

Hope springs eternal–even with monster movies.

Paul Feig–the filmmaker behind 2016’s Ghostbusters–has been trying to create a new monster entry for Universal Pictures for years now and, despite the resistance he has met along the way, he’s determined to see the project through.

Feig recently discussed his (as yet) unrealized Dark Army film–that would include characters from Universal’s classic monster stable and original monsters created by Feig–with Collider, and said this is one movie that is “driving me crazy.”

One of the main roadblocks, Feig said, is that “some people read the script and think it’s too expensive. I never saw it that way, but that’s what I hear. I’m still working on it and trying to get it to that sweet spot, but it’s hard.”

But he’s still hoping for the best, right? “Yes, of course,” the director said. “I have to make my monster movie. I’m so obsessed with making that movie.”

Feig went so far as to say he “loves” Dark Army. “It’s one of my favorite things I’ve ever written,” he said. “It’s one of my favorite lead characters I’ve ever come up with. So, fingers crossed, we will make it someday.”
