After helping Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast spin box office gold, director Bill Condon has been tapped to breathe new life into Bride of Frankenstein.

Universal Pictures said Monday that Condon’s remake will hit theatres in February 2019, making it the second film in its newly coined Dark Universe series.

Universal is one of the few studios without any superhero intellectual property and have long planned to draw on its own library of classic monster characters for a run of films.

First up in the Dark Universe series is this summer’s The Mummy reboot, starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Russell Crowe, which debuts in theatres on June 9.
