Universal wants to do the Monster Mash with Matt Stawski

According to Deadline, Universal Pictures has given the thumbs up to Monster Mash, an original musical film being set up for Matt Stawski to direct from a screenplay by Will Widger.

“Monster Mash” was a novelty song by Bobby “Boris” Pickett first released in 1962 when it shot to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart just before Halloween, becoming a perennial holiday favorite ever since. It has been covered numerous times, including by Horror punk band The Misfits.

As of now there are zero details on the film’s plot or characters, or if it will be part of Universal’s evolving Dark Universe which includes the upcoming Invisible Man and Paul Feig’s Dark Army. Suffice to say the project was developed by Stawski as his directorial debut. He enters the film arena having directed a number of music videos, as well as Side Effects for Awesomeness TV.

Widger worked on Damned for Legendary and Magic The Gathering and Lumberjanes for Fox.
