Universal Pictures is rebooting Van Helsing

Universal Pictures is rebooting the Van Helsing movie with the Mummy as the monster of the day. The studio has apparently tapped Star Trek and Transformer writers Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman (also creators of the science fiction TV series Fringe) to write the script. Tom Cruise is attached to star in and produce Van Helsing.

This is good news for me but I hope someday Universal will follow through with their plan to reboot the classic The Creature from the Black Lagoon.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
