Paul Feig has hinted that development on 'Dark Army' has been delayed as it a "little too expensive".

The 58-year-old director has been tapped to direct the Universal monster movie but suggested that the studio are hesitant about the project due to its costly nature – although he confirmed that he is desperate to get the movie on the big screen.

Paul said: "Oh, 'Dark Army'. I love that project so much. I think the studio thinks it's a little bit too expensive, perhaps.

"God as my witness, I'm gonna make that movie. I'm so obsessed with making that movie."

Paul is also set to direct the Netflix film 'The School for Good and Evil' and believes that the project will help him prepare for 'Dark Army'.

He told the website Collider: "One of the many reasons why I was drawn to doing this current Netflix (movie) is that there's a lot of stuff I can work out in it, as far as effects and all that, that I can bring to 'Dark Army'."

The 'Last Christmas' filmmaker added that 'Dark Army' is one of his "favourite" projects.

Paul said: "I love it. It's one of my favourite things I've ever written. It's one of my favourite lead characters I've ever come up with. So, fingers crossed that we will make it someday."

Feig previously suggested that he hoped to recreate elements of classic 'Frankenstein' and Dracula' films with the flick.

He said: "It's going to be fun and scary but just like the old 'Frankenstein' and 'Dracula' movies."

Paul has directed a variety of films, from 'Bridesmaids' to 'Ghostbusters', and admitted that he is proud that he is "racking up" the genres.

He said: "I'm stacking up the genres. What's next, musicals?"
