Transcript for Scarlett Johansson stars and produces reboot of 'Bride of Frankenstein'
to me this morning? You know what, we will see because I have a joke waiting for you. So let me get to it in the script. It's time for "Pop news." Scarlett Johansson getting ready to walk down the aisle as the bride of Frankenstein. That's right. The actress is set to produce and star in the upcoming genre bending film "Bride," which rips on the classic creepy character. The announcement comes 85 years after the original 1935 movie. Dan, do you remember that one in theaters? Ah, yes. Been waiting all morning. Scarlett saying, quote, it is long overdue for "Bride" to step out of the shadow of her male counterpart and stand alone and she goes on to say they plan to re-animate the story to reflect the change we see in the world. We love an old man Dan dig. That was a good year, wasn't it, Dan? Wasn't it? I'm nephew of Frankenstein. Yeah, I believe it. All right. In more scary movie news, Hollywood's reigning scream queens got together to dish about the films that made them Hollywood icons. Jamie Lee Curtis and neve Campbell chatting about "Halloween" and "Scream" and dropping a major bombshell. Take a look. I don't want to pretend to be sitting here talking about these movies as if I've actually, a, ever seen them, or, B, even like them. I'm so glad you said that. Because I don't, and that doesn't mean that they don't have a place in the world. No, they have a place in the world, but I don't watch them. Because they scare me. I'm exactly the same. Exactly the same. I cannot watch horror movies. Can't do it. There you have it. The two stars bonding over their fear of scary movies. Curtis left terrified after watching "The exorcist" as a teen, and Campbell unable to sleep for a month after seeing "The changeling" at a sleepover but called themselves two grateful scream queens. The full interview up on "Variety" now. I'm one of those scaredy cats. I don't have to watch a scary movie and I need all the lights on. And I can't go to sleep right after, for sure. Bad dreams. Dan, whit, you guys are fine with it? What keeps me up is gorging on candy corn. That's really the issue. Fair enough. I'm still thinking about Dan as Frankenstein. The lightning bolts in the neck and our makeup artists do a great job covering that up. Scary enough. Yes, they do. Every weekend. Plus, a friendship that is bone deep. Meet 2-year-old Theo Brady and his best bud, a five-foot skeleton who Theo has named Benny. Theo's mom Abby telling "Gma" they were in the basement when Theo noticed the decoration and the rest is history. Theo brings his buddy Benny everywhere from breakfast to playdates, trips to the grocery store and story time at night before bed. As for Halloween mom says the family plans on dressing up as "Nightmare before Christmas" and, of course, Benny will follow along in a pull wagon. They should dress up as "Weekend at Bernie's." I remember that movie. I was going to say that's a movie you would like. Maybe that was before your sorry. It was. No, I asked her if she was going to be nice. I shouldn't have even asked. You shouldn't. Well, because you start the morning as you walk by her dressing room. Yes, poke my head into the dressing room and make a few tart comments, and now I'm getting paid back. Thank you.
