denofgeek.com – Universal Pictures’ dubious attempt to remake Bride of Frankenstein as part of the “Dark Universe” might be dead, but the concept of reimagining the idea of a reanimated “Bride” in the 21st century leads on—with Scarlett Johansson as the lead, no less. The news came late Thursday when A24 and Apple TV+ announced Johansson would star in The Bride, a modern reworking of one of the most potent ideas in Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein novel.

The new film, which will be directed by Sebastián Lelo, reimagines the story of the Bride’s creation as less the attempt to build a “Monster’s Mate”—as she is credited in the 1935 Bride of Frankenstein movie—and more a parable about a woman finding a sense of self-realization in the modern world. It’s so modern in fact that her creator will be a wealthy tech CEO who has fastened a lady out of raw materials exclusively for himself. The logline reads as follows:

“A woman created to be an ideal wife—the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur—rejects her creator, and is forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. It is on the run that she finds her true identity, her surprising power, and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.”

The project is obviously a major endeavor for Johansson, who is producing the film alongside Jonathan Lia through their These Pictures banner. She also said in a statement, “It is long overdue for Bride to step out of the shadow of her male counterpart and stand alone… I am extremely excited to emancipate the classic anti-heroine and reanimate her story to reflect the change we see today.”

Johansson is of course hardly the first to try and breathe life into the concept. While the title “Bride of Frankenstein” is copyrighted by Universal Pictures, the concept of a female creature was a strong focal point in the narrative of Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel. In the book, Victor Frankenstein is pressured under threat of death by his Creature to make a female bride for the new species of reanimated corpses. Victor ultimately refuses at the eleventh hour, but the idea was so potent James Whale unpacked it fully in his 1935 masterpiece wherein Frankenstein (Colin Clive) creates a woman for Boris Karloff’s legendary monster.

Things of course do not go as planned, and Elsa Lanchester’s iconic turn as the Monster lasts about five minutes before she rejects Karloff’s lovelorn Monster, and he in turn condemns them both to a fiery death. Still, the idea of a Bride has lingered in pop culture, with Kenneth Branagh trying to insert her creation into his fascinating failure of an adaptation, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994). The Bride has also starred in her own film before, though not one any person has reason to remember, with Jennifer Beals playing the title role in The Bride (1985). It’s a misbegotten ‘80s attempt at Gothic horror; so ‘80s, in fact, it cast Sting as Dr. Frankenstein!

Perhaps the most notable attempt at making the Bride her own woman was when Billie Piper played a subversive version of the character in Showtime’s underrated Penny Dreadful series. Be that as it may, there’s a lot of room to expand here and offer a version as compelling as Lanchester’s brief 1935 appearance. At least judging by the logline, Johansson and Lelio are attempting to forgo the male Monster altogether, in which case this allows them to be an even looser (and more liberated) take on the Frankenstein myth. Indeed, one might wonder if the concept sounds like it is building on the final fleeting minutes of Alex Garland’s Ex Machina (2015), which concluded with an android killing her tech CEO inventor and striking out into the world.

Not that we’d mind, as Ex Machina is one of the finest science fiction movies of the last 20 years, and a pretty crafty retelling of the Frankenstein passion play. A24 also just so happened to release that film, just as they will be producing Bride alongside Apple TV+, who will premiere the film. A24 and Apple TV+’s first collaboration premieres on the streaming service later this week, with a delightful reunion of Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola in On the Rocks.

Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo will write Bride, following up their work on scripting Blumhouse’s upcoming The Wolfman remake, which will star Ryan Gosling.

Out Now On All Streaming Sites & Record Shops
Synopsis: “If Breakup was dealing with an unravelling relationship, Apart is dealing with the aftermath,” he explains. “It acknowledges the array of heavy emotions that come up living separate lives. You’re getting used to the idea of not being with someone who has been a big part of your life. Even after a break up has occurred, the presence of an ex still seems to loom large in one’s mind for a while. There are moments during the day where you wonder, is it really over? Or will there be another chapter in the relationship now that it has evolved? The EP is an attempt to sort through all this and get comfortable with the excitement of new freedoms while facing underlying fears of the unknown road that lies ahead.” P.T.O “Being able to revisit this project with Pete in a totally different context but within the same creative parameters is a unique artistic opportunity for me. It is always a pleasure to sing with Pete because I think our voices and stories complement each other.”

Solarresponders
On September 20th, 2017, Hurricane Maria knocked out power to 100% of Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million residents, hospitals, telecommunications, fire stations, and 85% of the police stations. The storm devastated all aspects of the electrical grid (the above ground lines, transformers, power plants) which resulted in the longest blackout in the United States. An estimated 2,975 people died in Puerto Rico as a direct result of Hurricane Maria, making it the deadliest natural disaster in the United States in 100 years. In emergency situations, first responder stations transform into makeshift crisis centers, playing an essential role for local communities. Even though stations are typically outfitted with backup diesel generators, they are vulnerable to supply chain failures and mechanical breakdown. Without any form of power, first responders lose their capacity to: effectively receive emergency calls from 911 dispatchers charge radios and operate computer systems to communicate and coordinate mutual aid operate the stations’ A/C, cooling fans and lights operate the watch-office, which serves as an emergency resource and community haven First responders cannot risk interference with key communication resources, especially while facing unpredictable and dangerous conditions that occur after disasters. When the electric grid fails, first responders are unable to respond. The scale and urgency of this problem is only increasing. As our climate changes, natural disasters are increasing in frequency and intensity. Action is needed now to ensure the critical needs of first responders in vulnerable regions are met so they can save lives when a disaster occurs.
Cover Girl

Scarlett is featured on the cover of the Winter Issue of The Gentlewoman Magazine promoting Black Widow.
Not that there’s been much acting of late. When the world came to a halt, Scarlett found herself “kind of flummoxed,” she says. “I don’t know, I was having an out-of-body experience.” Without a film to make, she found herself adrift, flirting with a minor existential crisis. “At the beginning, I was doing all this crap that everyone was doing – like, I’ll start learning how to play guitar,” she says, in one of a number of soliloquies during our conversation that veer between earnest self-interrogation and stand-up. “Whatever. In between panicking. And then that stuff sort of faded away, and I realised actually that I exist pretty well in this space. I realise I don’t have to be constantly in motion to survive, I think.” She pauses. “I’ve always had this fear of, what if everything goes away, what will become of me? It’s this great fear of the unknown, and now I’ve been that way for some time, I realise, Oh, actually, you’re still alive.” She smiles and adds cheerfully, “It probably comes from some fear of death, anyway.”
