While Universal has tabled plans to build its “Dark Universe”, it is still a top priority for the studio to find vehicles to deliver its stable of classic monsters to modern audiences. The Invisible Man has moved to the front of the queue and though the studio parted ways with Johnny Depp, they are preparing the project for a May start.
The studio is negotiating with Elisabeth Moss for the role of Cecilia Kass and has begun to set its sights on finding an actor to fill the titular role. The studio has whittled down its list to two top candidates to play the role of Adrian Griffin, a billionaire sociopath who made his money by developing an invisibility suit for the Deparment of Defense: Armie Hammer and Alexander Skarsgard.
Written and directed by Leigh Wannell and produced by Jason Blum, The Invisible Man will begin production this May ahead of an as yet to be announced release date. Stay tuned to That Hashtag Show for more on The Invisible Man as it becomes available.
