Universal Remaking Creature from the Black Lagoon; Scarlett Johansson to Star?

We recently learned that Universal Studios is looking to reboot all of their iconic monster properties, eventually bringing them together in a shared universe. They’re currently working on a modern day upgrade of The Mummy, and today we’ve got the scoop on their next undertaking. Read on!

The Tracking Board reports that Scarlett Johansson is being eyed to star in Universal’s upcoming Creature from the Black Lagoon remake, and she’s currently being courted to play the lead role that Julie Adams made famous in the 1954 original.

The film will be a remake of Jack Arnold’s sci-fi horror classic that set the tone for many monster movies that would follow. The story depicted a group of scientists that discover a dangerous prehistoric creature that is part human and part fish while on an expedition in the Amazon.

Creature from the Black Lagoon is taking shape at Universal, with Larger Than Life and Strike Entertainment producing. Gary Ross, Robin Bissell, Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will produce, with a screenplay by Jeff Blitz, Gary Ross, Tedi Sarafian and Paul Schering. Leslie Urdang, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Jay Polidoro will oversee development for the studio.

In 2014, Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan were hired by the studio to structure the new Universal universe. Although it is currently unclear which films will be included, it has been revealed that the 2010 film The Wolfman would not be a part of the series. As for Dracula Untold, it may or may not be.

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke.
