There's also apparently an Invisible Woman film as well.

Still doesn't make a cinematic universe - it's either standalone or a sequel to the Invisible Man.

Given Elizabeth Banks is directing, I'd assume it's a reboot of the comedic 1940 film and not a spinoff, unless Universal wants to take things in a REALLY weird direction

Not necessarily - while more known for her comedic work, she has branched out in other genres a little bit, so we can't say a more scary horror or thriller film isn't still a possibility.

The invisible woman reboot is not connected to to the Invisible man.

You'd never know. A sequel's a sequel after all.

A Renfield film we knew of, if that actually even gets off the ground, but a Demetre film does sound interesting.

No one is excited over on the Classic Horror Film Board either. Am I the only one who likes the idea of a Renfield movie?

Agreed that the Demeter movie is very fascinating though. A Dracula film set on a ship at sea, never seen anything like that before. Could be pretty cool.

I didn't exactly say I wasn't excited per se. Just that a part of me doubts if even at least half of these announced projects so far may actually get greenlit or even get released in the foreseeable future.

But anyways, yeah. I admit it's been a while since I read the original Bram Stoker novel.

Leigh Whannel will be walking the dog with directing the upcoming new take on Ryan Gosling's THE WOLF-MAN.

The guy who made Invisible Man is doing this? Alright, i'm interested... though not as much as that Blumhouse Dracula film.

The Wolfman is probably among my favorites of the Universal Monsters. Definitely count me in!

And with this right direction and same director of The Invisible Man, these movies will finally be on the game for sure.

Cool cool cool. For the first time I'm comfortably optimistic about the brand.
