Scarlett Johansson is set to star in a remake of The Bride of Frankenstein.

The 24-year-old blonde bombshell is tipped to portray a sexier version of the terrifying female monster in an updated version of the original 1935 horror movie.

A source said: "The Bride of Frankenstein will be young this time. They're looking for a person with great power and sex appeal. Someone along the lines of Scarlett Johansson or Anne Hathaway."

The wild-haired bride was originally played by English actress Elsa Lanchester.

The film follows on from Frankenstein - which sees Dr. Frankenstein bring a 'human' to life from separate body parts - and sees the doctor create a partner for the monster.

However, when Dr. Frankenstein brings the bride to life, she rejects the monster.

Neil Burger - who previously worked on The Illusionist - is set to director the movie and pen the script.

Guillermo del Toro recently revealed he is planning to begin work on a new version of Frankenstein, based on Mary Shelley's novel.
