Universal’s ‘Dark Universe’ featuring the studio’s classic monsters is no more with us – but the Invisible Man has come up to the scene in a new take from Blumhouse and writer-director Leigh Whannell. Johnny Depp is out of the project, and Elisabeth Moss is in for a new take on the material that seems to be directed more towards the ‘social horror’ boundary of Blumhouse’s Get Out. This variant of the story, very slightly based on H.G. Wells’ premise, casts Moss as Cecilia – a woman who flees a cruel relationship, but soon finds that her supposedly dead partner literally be with her wherever she goes, too much disbelief from her friends. Check out the trailer here.
The Invisible Man will hit UK cinemas from 28 February 2020.
