Renfield may have bombed at the box office, but that isn’t going to stop Universal from continuing to revive its Universal Monsters series.
Per Deadline, Dan Stevens (The Guest) and Melissa Barrera (Scream VI) will lead the cast of Radio Silence‘s Untitled Monster thriller at Universal. Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillett will helm the project, with Scream producer Chad Villella serving as producer alongside William Sherak, Paul Neinstein, and James Vanderbilt at Project X Entertainment. The script was written by Stephen Shields, with revisions by Guy Busick.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but sources say the film will provide a unique take on legendary monster lore and will represent a fresh, new direction for how to celebrate these classic characters.
Alisha Weir, Kathryn Newton, Angus Cloud, Will Catlett, and Kevin Durand will also star in the untitled film, which is set to hit theaters on April 19, 2024.
