Several sites are posting about the rumours about Angelina joining this project and a lot of other A level names are being mentioned again.

Angelina Jolie may play big time into Universal Picture’s somewhat quixotic bet on turning classic movie monsters into the next big shared cinematic universe mega-franchise to rival those created by Marvel and DC Comics. The studio has already signed on megastars like Tom Cruise, Javier Bardem, Russell Crowe and Johnny Depp, as they unveiled in (what turns out to have been) a composite group shot last week, but they very much wish Jolie was in the mix as well to play Frankenstein’s Monster’s bride.
The problem: negotiations with Jolie haven’t even begun.
The director Alex Kurtzman, who just made The Mummy talks to Fandom and mentions the further projects and how he wants Angelina to star:
“We know we’re going to do Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Phantom of the Opera, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Invisible Man,” he says.
The Dark Universe is an ambitious project in its infancy and casting rumours are already beginning to swirl around the franchise. There has been talk, for instance, that Angelina Jolie may pick up the Bride of Frankenstein role. Kurtzman does nothing to dismiss this when asked who he’d like to bring into the Dark Universe.
“I’d love to bring Michael Fassbender in, I’d love to bring Jennifer Lawrence in, I’d love to see Charlize Theron in there, Angelina Jolie…” he says.
