Paul Feig To Helm Universal Monster Movie

“Bridesmaids” and “Spy” director Paul Feig will pen and direct a new monster movie titled “Dark Army” for Universal Pictures.

Feig came up with the original idea which will make use of the studio’s classic monster library (Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolf Man) with characters from that appearing alongside original characters created by Feig.

However it will be a standalone project, much like Leigh Whannell’s currently shooting “The Invisible Man,” and won’t connect to a larger universe like the now abandoned ‘Dark Universe’ series of films intended to.

Feig’s holiday comedy “Last Christmas” opens later this year.
