Just wanted to tip everyone off to some interesting news that is breaking at Cannes.
According to a source at the movie festival, the newly revived, “Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine has announced that they are getting into the movie making biz.
So far, the magazine, once owned by the legendary publisher, Forrest J Ackerman, has a slate of five classic Universal horror franchises that they either wish to relaunch, or remake.
Check out these titles: Dracula: Reborn, Mummy: Resurrected, Frankenstein: Regenerated, Werewolf: Reloaded and Creature: Returns.
Not much else has surfaced about these potential new monster films, obviously based on the classic monster films of the 30s, 40s and 50s.
Is this true? Could “Famous Monsters” be about to start making their own films?
We’ll wait and see. This could just be a rumor.
I wonder what Universal will have to say about this?
