Van Helsing Reboot Scores Two New Scribes

Screenwriters Jon Spaihts (“Doctor Strange,” “Prometheus”) and Eric Heisserer (the “Elm Street” & “The Thing” reboots) have signed on to co-write the “Van Helsing” reboot at Universal Pictures.

Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan will produce the film which will be a part of Universal’s push to establish a classic monsters on-screen universe made up of interconnected films which start with a reboot of “The Mummy”.

Hugh Jackman starred in the 2004 film adaptation very loosely based on the character from Bram Stoker’s famed novel “Dracula”. In this version, he was also hunting other supernatural creatures like Frankenstein and the Wolf Man.
