Back in 2007, The Invisible Man was set to receive a modern retelling courtesy of David S. Goyer. This version of the project never went anywhere and Universal infamously announced The Invisible Man starring Johnny Depp as a part of the Dark Universe film slate. Luckily for Universal Pictures and the classic story it’s inspired from, Blumhouse Production joined the project and alongside Leigh Whannell, produced an entirely different film set to release February 28, 2020.
In the spirit of remaking previous “monster films,” Universal Pictures has announced a new version of The Invisible Woman. Attached to direct and star in the film is Elizabeth Banks, who recently starred in 2019’s Charlie’s Angels, will be joined by writer Erin Cressida Wilson. Wilson’s work includes The Girl on the Train and Secretary.
The original film was released in 1940 as a sequel to the original The Invisible Man film. However, this interpretation of the story is said to be separate. Not much else is currently known about the film but it’ll be interesting to see how closely they follow the original film.
