This new collaboration between Channing Tatum, Phil Lord and Chris Miller is being described as a “a modern-day, tongue-in-cheek thriller impressed by Universal’s basic monster legacy.” In keeping with Deadline, producer Reid Carolin, whose credit embrace Magic Mike and White Home Down, got here up with the concept and wrote the unique remedy. The script is at the moment being written by Halfway scribe Wes Tooke. Universal is working hand in hand with Lord and Miller’s Lord Miller manufacturing banner and Tatum’s Free Affiliation manufacturing firm to make the mission occur.

I imply who wouldn’t need to see him put his personal spin on Dracula or Frankenstein?
This movie is additional proof that Universal is dedicated to delivering extra content material from its steady of monster motion pictures, and it’s nice to see that they’re diversifying issues a bit.
