Alex Kurtzman & Chris Morgan To Relaunch Classic Universal Monster Franchises

Universal has called upon Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan to relaunch the studio's classic monsters.  Not familiar with Universal's classic monsters?  Here's a refresher: FRANKENSTEIN, DRACULA, THE WOLFMAN, THE MUMMY, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and so on.

The first on the relaunch slate is THE MUMMY.
They’ve begun the meetings to put together an interconnected slate of Monster films, and the first will be a reboot of The Mummy, which will be released April 22, 2016. Part of their duty will be to work closely with production, marketing, promotions and consumer product to support the revival. They will also reevaluate projects which have preexisting attachments, and bring it under one cohesive strategy.
Color me excited!

Keep in mind, Universal tried to reboot THE WOLFMAN franchise with Benicio Del Toro but it ultimately failed.
