"I'm very excited to bring a new Bride of Frankenstein to life on screen, particularly since James Whale's original creation is still so potent. The Bride of Frankenstein remains the most iconic female monster in film history, and that's a testament to Whale's masterpiece—which endures as one of the greatest movies ever made."
Bill Condon[src]

On May 22, 2017, Bride of Frankenstein was announced to be the second film in the Dark Universe. Also revealed were Bill Condon as director, Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan as producers, and David Koepp as the writer. Condon revealed that the actress chosen to play the titular monster would be revealed soon.[1] Additionally, on that same day, Javier Bardem was confirmed to join the cast as Frankenstein's monster.[2]

On October 5, 2017, it was announced that the film's February 14, 2019, release date had been scrapped. The reason given was that both director Bill Condon and writer David Koepp expressed desires to have more time to develop the screenplay.[3] This, along with the report that Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan had left Universal, led to reports that Universal Pictures had scrapped their plans for the Dark Universe.[4] However, in January 2018, a production team for the film was assembled, and it was reported that the franchise was eyeing Gal Godot for the lead role.[5]
