To a New World of Gods and Monsters
Burger's a solid choice, who achieved decent success with 2006's The Illusionist. It's a remake that I'm not in a tizzy over, since it's a 70+ year old movie that could be done well, assuming they don't focus on effects, and instead concentrate on the dynamic of a lonely creature who desperately just wants someone to love him, instead of chasing him with torches and pitchforks.
Of course, Universal Pictures makes me nervous as hell -- the last time they went to the classic monster well, we ended up with one of the worst genre films ever made, the disastrously awful Van Helsing, which basically skullfucked every classic monster in cinematic and literary history. I suppose as long as they make sure Stephen Sommers doesn't even enter the same time zone. Although, Kate Beckinsale would make an excellent Bride, considering she's basically a talking doll anyway. Hey-O!
God, Van Helsing sucked.
