Dyer joins the already announced cast of Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge and Storm Reid. The pic will shoot in Dyer’s native country of Australia next month, specifically Sydney.
Leigh made waves recently with his mature cyberpunk film Upgrade starring Logan Marshall-Green.
While researching a new drug, Dr. Jack Griffin stumbles on a potion that can make him invisible. When he reveals his new ability to his old mentor and his fiancée, it’s clear that a side effect of the potion is insanity. Jack goes on a violent rampage, and the police struggle to hunt him down, unable to see their target, while his mentor and his former partner desperately try to devise a plan to capture him.
Universal Pictures has set a release date of March 13th, 2020 for The Invisible Man.
