A couple of years ago, Universal was making grandiose plans to create a so-called Dark Universe that would bring together monsters from the studio's classic horror films. However, the failure of the new "Mummy" forced the leadership of the major to reconsider the strategy, and as a result, the famous monsters fled to the corners - each of them will receive a separate solo album with an independent plot and a special atmosphere.|
The first to try to charm the audience will be The Invisible Man. At the time of the construction of the Dark Universe, Johnny Depp was supposed to play the title character of the tape, but now Universal and the company Blumhouse, helping monsters rise from their graves, have found another actor for this role. Oliver Jackson-Cohen, better known for his work on TV, will disappear on the big screens - his track record includes the series Dracula, The Emerald City and The Haunting of Hill House.
Even though the film is called The Invisible Man, the central character will not be the titular monster, but a girl named Cecilia played by Elisabeth Moss, who learns that her violent ex has committed suicide. The heroine tries to change her life for the better, but soon begins to suspect that the news of her boyfriend's death is exaggerated. It's easy to guess that Cecilia's ex-lover didn't die, but just learned to be invisible.
In addition to Moss and Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Harriet Dyer and Storm Reid will be involved in the filming of the film, and Lee Whannell (Astral 3) will lead the work on the film. The premiere of The Invisible Man is set for March 13, 2020.
