Wait. Is the new VAN HELSING project original, or a reboot?

This is a serious question.

After relaunching its monster-movie library with the hit The Invisible Man, Universal Pictures is continuing to build up its development slate and has its sights on one of its more iconic non-monster characters. Sources tell Deadline that Universal is developing an original horror/thriller inspired by the studio’s classic monster legacy set in the world of Van Helsing, with Julius Avery (Overlord) directing and James Wan producing through his Atomic Monster banner.

(H/T: GeekTyrant) You see, I remember the 2004 VAN HELSING. …I really wanted to like that movie. There were parts that I did like. But I wasn’t broken-hearted when they never made a sequel. Caveat auteur.
