Paired with Blumhouse, the studio reimagined their monster movie character in a stunning new way, leading to critical acclaim and strong box office numbers.

Months after Universal successfully relaunched its monster universe with Elisabeth Moss's "The Invisible Man", the studio is pushing ahead for "Wolfman" - which is being developed as a starring vehicle for Ryan Gosling - to be the next movie based on its catalog of iconic creatures.

Variety reported that the studio is looking for the director and is near the final decision.

Both "The Invisible Man" and "The Wolf Man" are part of Universal's catalogue of horror monsters, with the original plan being that they'd all feature in an interconnected franchise called "Dark Universe".

Suffolk Police announced on Thursday that they have positively identified a Jane Doe victim in the Gilgo Beach Murders. The police department worked with the Federal Bureau of Investigation using DNA techniques to identify Mack.

Per Variety, while no director has been attached now, Corey Finley - director of two critically acclaimed films with Thoroughbreds and Bad Education - seems to be in the running.

Apparently, the Universal Studio is planning to make a Wolfman movie, as of now the script has been penned down by Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo.

As far as the plot, The Hollywood Reporter says "Gosling would play an anchorman who gets infected".

On a related note, Variety reveals that several filmmakers, including, but not limited to, James Wan, Paul Feig, and John Krasinski, have pitched their own takes on characters in Universal's massive monsters library and each of those projects are now in various stages of development. "With their masterful ability to balance drama, action, and humor, Phil and Chris are the flawless filmmakers to take on this unique material and we are thrilled to have them partner with Ryan, Ken, Andy, Amy and Aditya to bring this movie to life for big screens everywhere", said De Luca and Pamela Abdy, MGM film group president. That project is based on The Martian author Andy Weir's next novel, which is now untitled. A new version of Dracula is also in development. As an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases.
