FanCast: Universal’s Bride of Frankenstein

As previously reported, Universal Studios next film to be part of their Dark Universe will be Bride of Frankenstein. Bill Condon (Beauty and the Beast) is attached to direct and the film has a release date for February 14, 2019.

Back in November 2015, Angelina Jolie was once rumored to be in talks for the part but it seems that is no longer the case. However, in the Dark Universe announcement from Universal, they made it clear that an actress would soon be cast in the part. Actor Javier Bardem has already been cast as Frankenstein’s Monster.

So for today’s FanCast, the question is: Who do you want to see cast as the Bride of Frankenstein?

My pick: Kelly Rowland.

She was the first name that came to mind. Don’t ask me why, because I can’t tell you. She’s only been in four films (Freddy vs. Jason being one of them), but if we’re trying to match Elsa Lanchester’s stunning look and appeal, I think she could do it. I understand why Universal was seeking Angelina Jolie for the role back in 2015, but for some reason my out-of-nowhere pick of Kelly Rowland isn’t so bad. Sure, she’s not in the same caliber of acting that Universal seems to be trying for with this universe (props to them for managing to get Bardem, Cruise, and Depp in this universe, well down Universal), but why should that be an issue?

That’s my FanCast for the Bride of Frankenstein. What’s yours?

  • Basement_Bros


  • Jean Morel

    Ah ok, I get it. What’s it from? The Office or something?

  • Basement_Bros

    I was looking for the original gif where he’s pointing to his right, as if to say “this guy gets it.” Then I found this manipulated one to make him point up (probably for threads like this). But it seems to fit the joke of assembling a person out of different pieces, haha.

  • Jean Morel

    lol, what does that mean?

  • Basement_Bros
  • Duke

    I can get behind that.

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    Angelina Jolie!

  • Jooshua

    So that’s what the R in rated R means.. REASONS.

  • TheGreenMalice

    Maybe Samantha Morton?

  • They seem to be going for older stars, so Halle Berry.

  • Basement_Bros

    Maybe Elizabeth Debicki? She was a scene-stealer in U.N.C.L.E. and GoTG2.

  • Basement_Bros

    If she’s cast, the movie needs to be rated R, for… reasons.

  • Joe Newman

    Nobody because they shouldn’t be remaking this. However since it’s going to happen, I’ll agree with Sean about Brienne.

  • Joe Newman

    She can definitely scream.

  • Jooshua


  • Jooshua

    Eva Green of course. Because she can be all the things.

  • sailor monsoon

    What a great choice

  • sailor monsoon

    Tatiana Maslany.
    She can do anything and she needs a breakout role
    Tom Hiddelston as Dr Frankenstein

  • Jean Morel

    Well….what we should do is get one actress to the motion work, one actress whose face will be digitally added on and who’ll do all the facial work and another actress to do the voice.

    I think Charlize Theron would be a good choice. She has the stature (she’s 5’10), the beauty, and the star power.

  • Sean Luke McCard

    Well if we need someone to match up with Frankenstein’s monster in stature, and we want someone who is a terrific actress, I’d say lets go with Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones.)
