UPDATE: 5/3/2016 @ 10:03 pm ET – Universal Monsters mystery film added!?!
As first reported on comingsoon.net, a new film has been added to the Universal Monsters movie schedule. The unknown film is set to be released February 15, 2019. It has already been reported that Johnny Depp has been linked to The Invisible Man but that film does not have a definite release date yet.
