Originally it was the Pirates of the Caribbean as the star Johnny Depp's title role in this Universal Monsters took on a reboot, as this was considered a matter of higher budget, but Elizabeth Moss (19459003: The Handmaid & # 39; s Tale, 19459004: Us) is pioneering, but not a ls Invisible Woman. Instead, we see things from her perspective, with her boyfriend, played by Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Hill House (19459004), Dracula (19459004)) as the title character. Leigh Whannell ( Upgrade ) sits in the director's chair and authored the script.
The Invisible Man revolves around Cecilia Kass ( Elizabeth Moss ), who is in a controlling and abusive relationship with a reputable, wealthy scientist is caught. Cecilia finally escapes and disappears with the help of her sister (Harriet Dyer), her boyhood friend (Aldis Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid). However, when her abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) commits suicide and Cecilia leaves a large portion of his impressive fortune, she begins to suspect that his death was not real. A series of eerie coincidences begin to develop, causing Cecilia to break away and prove that she is being hunted by someone no one else can see.
H.G. Wells originally published the story The Invisible Man in 1897. The beloved work was often adapted for the canvas in the past, perhaps most notably in 1933. This classic film was staged by James Whale and is considered a pioneering work of the era. Over the decades, more adaptations of varying quality have been added, including the 2000 Hollow Man directed by Paul Verhoeven, starring Kevin Bacon. Johnny Depp's version would have existed in a universe alongside Tom Cruise's 2017 version of The Mummy which opened and ended the Dark Universe, as the film did not meet expectations critically or commercially.
The hope is that this movie is good enough for the studio to explore other settings of its various monster features. Whether this leads to a coherent universe or not remains to be seen. But in a time when the studios hope to recreate the Marvel Cinematic Universe with other franchises, it's easy to see how attractive this idea could be. However, the studio now seems to progress step by step, which is probably the best. The Invisible Man is expected to be published on February 28, 2020 by Blumhouse and Universal Pictures ]
