Paul Feig Universal Monster Film wird wohl kein Horrorfilm werden

In einem Interview mit Collider sprach Regisseur Paul Feig ein wenig über seinen geplanten Film für die “Universal Monster”-Reihe. Demnach werde es kein Horrorfilm im klassischem Sinne werden. Seiner Meinung nach drehen sich Monserfilme vor allem immer um Außenseiter. Und genau diese Emotionen, will er in seinem Film eher fokussieren, um einen gewissen Realismus mit einzubauen. Zudem ist ihm der Humor auch wichtig. Es soll zwar kein Spoof werden, aber dennoch soll sein Film viel Spaß bieten.

“To me, it’s about outsiders. Those monster movies, a lot of them were directed by gay directors, and I’ve read a lot about how these monsters represented outsiders in society and how they felt and all that. So that kind of realism and the emotions of it are very important to me. It’s not just scaring people, it’s how do you invest in these situations and these characters? You know, Frankenstein is such a tragic character. That’s the kind of feel I want with this. It’ll be funny, but it’s not a spoof. It’s fun and funny in the interactions of these characters, but the situations are very real and serious. I hope we get to make it. Who knows what’s happening? Right now everything is in turmoil because of the virus.”

“Tonally I’m being very true to the traditional monster movie genre. Not horror movie, monster movie. I love those movies of the 30s, the James Whale movies, [and] Bride of Frankenstein I still think is one of the greatest films of all time. So I want that tone because those movies were very fun. They treated them seriously, but you also know they were also having a lot of fun with them, so there are a lot of extreme characters in them and funny side characters. That’s what I want, I never wanted to make a horror movie. I want to make a true monster movie.”
