The Invisible Man is being brought back to the big screen and here's everything we know about it so far!
Universal Studios' "Dark Universe" seemed like an interesting idea at first. However after Dracula Untold and Tom Cruise's The Mummy flopped at the box office, Universal quickly gave up on that dream. One such film that was supposed to be a part of the "Dark Universe" was The Invisible Man with Johnny Depp in the starring role. That movie has been squashed but Blumhouse Productions later bought the rights to the movie and started filming with Whannell serving as director and writer. Here is everything we know about the upcoming film.
We won't have to wait very long to see The Invisible Man reboot as it has been scheduled to be released on February 28, 2020.
Filming began on July 16, 2019, and ended on September 17, 2019, in Sydney, Australia.
The official synopsis unveiled by Universal and Blumhouse is:
“Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid).
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax.
As a series of eerie coincidences turn lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.”
The synopsis of the movie is definitely very different from that of the original work but it still does sound very interesting.
Johnny Depp will not be in this new version but there are still a couple of popular names in it. Elizabeth Moss, who is very well known for her role in The Handmaid's Tale, will be in the main starring role as Cecilia Kass. Cecilia is a woman being targeted by an invisible man. Oliver Jackson-Cohen, who is well known for his role in Netflix's The Haunting Of Hill House will be playing the role of the villainous Invisible Man Adrian Griffin. Some other members of the cast include Aldis Hodge as James, Storm Reid as Sydney, Harriet Dyer as Cecilia's sister, Benedict Hardie, Amali Golden as Annie, Sam Smith and
Anthony Brandon Wong.
The trailer gives us a creepy insight into the horror aspect of the film.
