Welcome back to another episode of the Ken Frederick Podcast! In this episode we talk about the start of the new Universal Monsters Shared Universe, or UMSU if you will. The plan is for Universal Studios to go back to the classics and recreate the very first shared movie universe by updating and modernizing the Universal Monsters. They have decided to move away from the horror genre and give this a more action adventure feel. They will start in the spring of 2017 with The Mummy featuring Tom Cruise, and will move onto the Invisible man in 2018 starring Johnny Depp. They are going big with casting and have brought in a group of A list stars to front these new films. There are also some rumors about casting of future films including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Scarlet Johansson. So what do you think?? Will this series be successful? Are you excited to check these out? Let us know in the comments!! Thanks as always for listening, and don’t forget to check us out on social media and YouTube!
