Some time ago it was made known that Guillermo Del Toro was working on a Frankenstein film for Universal.
Guillermo Del Toro is producing a remake/reboot of Van Helsing for Universal along with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Guillermo Del Toro recently made Pacific Rim with Legendary Pictures, a partnership Del Toro seems to have loved.
Guillermo Del Toro has a decent relationship with both of them.
Tom Cruise, who was set to star in Del Toro's At The Mountains of Madness was connected to the remake/reboot of Van Helsing.
When Legendary Pictures broke away from Warner Bros., I predicted that Legendary would partner with Universal. This came true.
Legendary's first project with Universal is the upcoming Dracula Untold.
I predicted what all of this meant: that Universal is going to try and revive their classic monsters in a single cinematic universe, similar to what Marvel Studios has done.

Called it. Universal's going to attempt to make a Cinematic Monster Universe. I'm betting it will all start with Dracula Untold next year.
