When it's horror, it's James Wan we are talking about. The man who we know to be a pioneer of horror films, especially Conjuring and Conjuring 2, has decided to team up with Universal for an upcoming horror/thriller inspired by Universal's Monster legacy.
Details of the untitled project are sparse. Wan is set to produce the project, and a director has not yet been set. Friday’s announcement comes a week after the better-than-expected debut of the Universal’s The Invisible Man, a modern-day version of the studios’ 1933 movie of the same name. Other Universal monster titles of that era include Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Wolf Man and Creature from the Black Lagoon.
Wan is producing through his Atomic Monster banner, which is in post-production on Wan’s “Malignant,” due out on Aug. 14.
Robbie Thompson is writing the script for the new project. Thompson is a co-executive producer on the upcoming Netflix series “Cursed,” the origin story of the Lady of the Lake from the Arthurian legend.
Wan is also on board for the Aquaman sequel
