Scarlett Johansson will star in and produce, Bride, a new take on the classic Bride of Frankenstein for Apple and A24. Scarlett will produce the film alongside Joanthan Lia through their These Pictures company, Lauren Schuker Blum and Rebecca Angelo will write the screenplay and Sebastián Lelio will direct.
Speaking of the project Johansson said, “It is long overdue for Bride to step out of the shadow of her male counterpart and stand alone. Working alongside Rebecca Angelo and Lauren Schuker Blum, Sebastián and I are extremely excited to emancipate this classic anti-heroine and reanimate her story to reflect the change we see today.”
The movie is described as “A woman created to be an idea wife – the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur – rejects her creator, and is forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. It is on the run that she finds her true identity, her surprising power, and the strength the remake herself as her own creation.”
