Los Angeles [U.S.A], Oct. 6 (ANI): The 'Bride of Frankenstein' is postponing her return to the big screen.
A remake of the 1935 classic, the film was initially meant to be released on February 14, 2019.
Angelina Jolie is in negotiations to star, while 'Mission: Impossible' writer David Koepp is writing the screenplay.
The studio issued a statement, which read, "After thoughtful consideration, Universal Pictures and director Bill Condon have decided to postpone 'Bride of Frankenstein'. None of us want to move too quickly to meet a release date when we know this special movie needs more time to come together. Bill is a director whose enormous talent has been proven time and again, and we all look forward to continuing to work on this film together."
Condon recently spoke about the film's script, which he described as turning "everything on its head," from the classic work of filmmaker James Whale.
