Thanks for linking those, Grifman, but that's a pretty lukewarm excuse for a commitment, considering it's coming from their distribution guy. Of course he's going to say that when asked about the abysmal box office.
The more important barometer will be what we hear from Universal's production folks. For instance, if we hear that Angelina Jolie is definitely onboard with Bride of Frankenstein, then I'll believe they're still throwing money at the franchise. Until then, I fully expect it will be scaled down at best, and let go at worst. Everyone brace yourselves for Cara Delevingne or Mila Kunis as our next Bride of Frankenstein!
