Scarlett Johansson to Star in 'Bride,' a New Take on the Bride of Frankenstein

Scarlett Johansson will star in the upcoming movie Bride, which is being made by A24 and Apple.

The movie is a new take on the Bride of Frankenstein character and it will be directed by Chilean director Sebastián Lelio, whose movie A Fantastic Woman won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.

THR reports that the movie is about “a woman created to be an ideal wife— the singular obsession of a brilliant entrepreneur— who rejects her creator, and is forced to flee her confined existence, confronting a world that sees her as a monster. It is on the run that she finds her true identity, her surprising power, and the strength to remake herself as her own creation.”

Scarlett said, “It is long overdue for Bride to step out of the shadow of her male counterpart and stand alone. Working alongside [writers] Rebecca Angelo and Lauren Schuker Blum, Sebastian and I are extremely excited to emancipate this classic anti-heroine and reanimate her story to reflect the change we see today.”

In a recent interview, Scarlett‘s fiance revealed some details about what he hopes happens at their future wedding. She’s going to be a bride for real soon!
