Elisabeth Moss is officially on board The Invisible Man reboot, based on the classic 1897 sci-fi novel by HG Wells, Deadline reported.
This would be Moss’ second collaboration with Blumhouse after Jordan Peele’s recent critically-acclaimed hit, Us.
Leigh Whannell is directing the film. He will co-produce alongside Blumhouse. The novel has been adapted for both the big screen and television over the years.
Its most notable adaptation is the 1933 black-and-white film, featuring Claude Rains in the titular role.
The studio had earlier planned a shared universe based around its classic monster characters and had roped in stars like Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe, Javier Bardem and Sofia Boutella for it. The shared universe was dubbed as the Dark Universe.
The plan has been kept on hold after the failure of Cruise’s The Mummy in 2017.
Depp, who was supposed to take on the titular role, will not star in the new project, which is being developed as a separate entry.
