Leigh Whannell's upcoming take on The Invisible Man from Blumhouse Productions has been moving along fairly quickly since finding its star in actress Elisabeth Moss and we can now mark our calendars for when this film will materialize on the big screen. Universal announced earlier today that the film has been given a March 13th, 2020 release date, which is just over a year after the project was originally announced. As previously reported, filming is set to begin this summer in Sydney, Australia.
The story of The Invisible Man centers around a woman named Cecilia, who learns her abusive ex-boyfriend committed suicide. Picking up the pieces to rebuild her life for the better, she soon begins to question her sense of reality as she suspects her deceased former lover is not actually gone.
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. Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) and Storm Reid (A Wrinkle In Time, 12 Years a Slave) will star, but further casting has yet to be detailed.
The Invisible Man will begin filming this July in Sydney, Australia with a target release date of March 13th, 2020. 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.
