While the Dark Universe is dead and buried, Universal’s attempts to resurrect its classic monsters are only getting more interesting. The studio is currently working on an original musical film!
Titled Monster Mash, the film was written by Will Widger and will be the feature directorial debut of Matt Stawki, a Grammy-nominated music video director who has worked with the likes of CeeLo Green, Fall Out Boy, and Paramore.
It’s unclear at this time whether the musical will be based on Bobby “Boris” Pickett’s hit 1962 novelty song of the same name—or, indeed, whether it will be a graveyard smash. We’ll bring you more updates as we hear them.
