the predator Yvonne Strahovski

When Shane Black revealed the cast of The Predator in a photo on Monday, one thing became abundantly clear: there was only one woman in that line-up of well-dressed and generally handsome gentlemen. But now, we know that Olivia Munn won’t be the only woman on the alien hunter’s to-kill list. She’s getting some company in the form of Yvonne Strahovski.

van helsing reboot

I’ve become something of a broken record when it comes to Universal’s upcoming “shared monsters universe,” where the likes of Frankenstein and Dracula and the Wolf Man will brush shoulders across a series of movies. I love the original Universal monster movies too much to not spend at least 30 seconds of every day worrying about what these movies will look and feel like. It’s in my obsessive nature. I store those original movies right next to my soul! Remove them from existence and my spirit withers into dust!

The latest piece of news to emerge from monster-land involves the new Van Helsing movie, which I continue to hope will be a little more Peter Cushing and a little less Hugh Jackman. Specifically, the project has landed a new writer.

van helsing reboot

Universal’s last Van Helsing movie didn’t do any favors for the monster hunter’s name, but the stench of that misfire is now long gone. While director Stephen Sommers made Helsing’s world largely ridiculous and low on scares, screenwriters Jon Spaihts (Passengers) and Eric Heisserer (Arrival) are interested in grounding the character. As Heisserer recently put it, he wants to make Van Helsing someone with no extraordinary powers saving the day in a story that’s “as scary as possible.”

Below, read what else the Academy Award nominated screenwriter had to say about the new Van Helsing movie.

On the bright side, though, a 2017 premiere date is looking more and more realistic.
