Yesterday, Upgrade cinematographer Stefan Duscio posted on his official blog confirming that he will officially be reuniting with Upgrade director Leigh Whannell for his next film The Invisible Man, which will star Elisabeth Moss with Blumhouse working on the film for Universal Pictures.
Here is what Stefan had to say on his blog post from Saturday.
Today I started pre-production on a new feature film – The Invisible Man. Co-produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions and Goalpost Pictures this sci-fi horror movie is inspired by the classic monster character for Universal Pictures.
Great to be working with Leigh Whannell again (following Upgrade), who will script and direct the movie. Elisabeth Moss has joined the cast in a lead role.
Filming is expected to begin sometime this summer.
The horror film is a re-telling of the classic H.G. Wells story that was turned into a film by Universal in 1933.
While researching a new drug, Dr. Jack Griffin (Claude Rains) stumbles on a potion that can make him invisible. When he reveals his new ability to his old mentor (Henry Travers) and his fiancée (Gloria Stuart), 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 (William Harrigan) desperately try to devise a plan to capture him.
A release date has yet to be announced for the film.
