In addition to Leigh Whannell's The Invisible Man, Universal Pictures continues to dive back into the world of monsters with Dark Army, a new collaboration with filmmaker Paul Feig.

According to multiple sources, including Deadline, the monster movie Dark Army will be written and directed by Feig, based on his original idea. Feig will also produce alongside Laura Fischer.

Whenever a monster movie is being made at Universal, you can't help but wonder if it will include their classic Universal Monsters, and with the word "Dark" in its title, Dark Army may even remind you of the interconnected Dark Universe that Universal was planning before taking a different direction after the release of 2017's The Mummy.

Looking into the potential for appearances by the Universal Monsters, Deadline's Mike Fleming Jr. writes, "I’m told the project will include characters from Universal’s classic monster library and original characters created by Feig."

In addition to The Invisible Man and Dark Army, films on other Universal Monsters are reportedly being pitched, and with a large catalog of characters to choose from (including Frankenstein's monster, the Mummy, and Dracula), we might not have long to wait for more films featuring Universal's classic horror characters.

We'll have to wait and see if Dark Army will actually include classic Universal Monsters and who those characters will be, and in the meantime, we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed.
