The Hollywood Reporter's Risky Biz Blog has revealed that Universal and Imagine are negotiating with Neil Burger to write and direct a remake of the 1935 monster movie Bride of Frankenstein.

Burger will write the script with writing partner Dirk Wittenborn.

James Whale's original Bride of Frankenstein starred Boris Karloff as the monster and Elsa Lanchester as the infamous bride, and continued the story that began with 1931's Frankenstein.

No production date has been set.
