Following through on its plan to reboot its classic monster franchies, Universal has dated an untitled monster movie for April 21, 2017.
The film is the first to emerge from a planned series produced and overseen by the creative team of Alex Kurtzman (“Star Trek”) and Chris Morgan (“Fast and Furious” series).
Universal has already set a June 24, 2016, launch for its reboot of “The Mummy” with Kurtzman producing along with Sean Daniel and Roberto Orci.
The untitled monster film is the first movie to be dated on April 21, 2017.
The studio announced plans in July to create a Marvel-like cinematic universe around the studio’s classic monsters the Mummy, Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolfman, the Invisible Man and the Creature From the Black Lagoon.
