Paul Feig Reveals the Status of Universal’s Dark Army

Last year, ComingSoon.net had the chance to talk with Emmy nominee Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Spy, Ghostbusters) where he opened up about his love for monster movies and his vision for Universal Pictures’ forthcoming Dark Army. In the interview, he also revealed that he had already finished writing the first draft of the script. Now Feig has finally shared a new update about the status of his monster movie, revealing that he is currently rewriting his first draft and is hoping that Dark Army can be his next film or the film after that.

“I wrote a draft and got thoughts from the studio, and now I’m in the middle of a rewrite on that right now,” Feig said during his interview with Collider. “And so hopefully that’ll be my next movie. If it’s not, it’ll be the one after whatever I do next. But yeah, I’m very excited about it, too. It’s just, you want to get it right.” 

When asked about Universal’s previously announced monster projects, Feig praises the studio’s new smart direction in finding ways to bring new modern iterations of the classic monsters. “It’s really smart, because I mean, I can’t wait for Invisible Man, but that looks like a straight-up great horror movie, you know? But then the fact that I just read that they’re going to do this like monster musical, and that’s great, too. I mean, the monster world is just so great. It’s nice to see it just kind of get interpreted a million different ways. So I’m excited about mine and about whatever else they’re going to do.”
