Dark times for Universal's Dark Universe?
The Hollywood Reporter reports that writers and producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan have left the project to take on other endeavors (namely, back to producing for CBS television and the Fast and Furious franchise respectively). The concern is that these two were kinda put in charge of running the whole show over there, and the timing of the box-office results of THE MUMMY (which I thought was an awesome and fun film by the way) is having people speculating about the entire future of the Monster-verse.
The next movie in the roster was supposed to be BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN but that was stalled this past month with no date set on returning to pre-production.
There are also reports that a rad office building on the lot that was remodeled for the whole operation is practically empty at this time.
