It looks like Emmy award winner Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) will indeed be starring in Universal and Blumhouse's upcoming new take on The Invisible Man. As we reported in the beginning of last month, the actress was in early talks for a starring role in the project, but it looks like it's a done deal now as Deadline reports the casting has been made official.
The project, helmed by actor/filmmaker Leigh Whannell, will not be part of any kind of connected universe and is said to be highly character driven, as opposed to something flashy with a huge budget. Nonetheless, this is the first bit of potential casting news we have heard so far as the film heads into the early stages of production.
Once again, Johnny Depp will not be involved in this film as initially rumored. That speculation dates back to Universal's original plans for the movie prior to the cancellation of its Dark Universe idea. He was originally attached to the effort before the studio opted to go back to the drawing board with its monsters properties, eventually deciding on starting fresh on The Invisible Man with Blumhouse.
The Invisible Man is expected to come together fairly quickly with Leigh Whannell directing, but there is currently no release date available at this time. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this film as well as the Universal Monsters franchise as a whole.
