Universal plans to reveal more about its Dark Universe film franchise next week, and in doing so, rumors are swirling about possible casting options for films beyond next month’s The Mummy, with Tom Cruise.
The studio is reportedly courting both Angelina Jolie and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for roles in The Bride of Frankenstein and Wolfman, respectively.
The franchise already has A-list star power — behind personalities like Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe in The Mummy, and casting choices Johnny Depp in The Invisible Man and Javier Bardem in Frankenstein.
Neither actor has officially been cast for the Dark Universe films. Universal’s willingness to move forward, and how quickly, will most likely depend on The Mummy’s box office returns when it hits theaters June 9th.
