‘Dracula Untold’ Director Gary Shore Shares About Universal’s Cinematic Monster Universe

Universal Pictures is gearing up to make a combat cinematic universe opposite the Marvel Studios and Disney tandem as they work to create a universe centered on the classical tales of monsters. Read on to know more about this scoop.

Universal Pictures has been gearing up to create a cinematic universe that could possibly compete with the success of Marvel Studios. Their “Bourne” universe project is still under negotiations, and that’s not the only universe they are working on developing. As “Dracula Untold” recently graced the theaters, the studio is now starting to let out information that the movie is the first of the coming films set to create a monstrous cinematic universe. These were all just plans then, but new sources arise that this time, it is coming from the helmsman of the said film, Gary Shore.


Screen Rant was able to highlight the fact that one of the hottest things in Hollywood at the moment is creating continuity on different movie outputs, having to create franchises that are parts of one universe which generates a fluid connection to all mediums. With that, Gary Shore shares his plans and thoughts in the development of the other follow-up films.

He starts off and explains the creation of the film that is developed for franchising. TV series are usually the main medium to turn to when it comes to long-term story telling, but it appears Marvel has done a great job in adapting lengthy storylines into the big screen, despite the fact that it would take years before the franchise would reach its final endpoint. Universal is able to pull it off with “Fast and Furious” franchise, and they wish to expand it even more in a (literally) monstrous level.

“I think the studios see that as being the future of long form story telling. Universal has been very successful already doing that with the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise. Looking at this one, they see this as their monster universe. That’s their catalogue. They want to be able to tap into that and make use of it,” elaborated Director Shore on Screen Rant.

Dracula Untold” appears to be the beginning of something great for Universal, which we will have to wait and see until it unfolds concretely. The movie is still in theaters now, and if you’ve seen it already or not watch it, check for possible clues that could support their claims to develop a cinematic monstrous universe.

That concludes our scoop on Director Gary Shore sharing about Universal’s plan to pursue a classic take of a supernatural universe. Keep tabs on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates in movies, TV series and celebrities.
