Filming is currently underway on Leigh Whannell's The Invisible Man, which is being developed by Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions. Originally aiming for a March 13th, 2020 target release date, Deadline has now reported that the film will now arrive two weeks earlier than expected. The new release date is February 28th as the movie has shifted away from Warner Bros’ Godzilla vs. Kong, which is set to debut on this film's original opening weekend.
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), Storm Reid (A Wrinkle In Time, 12 Years a Slave), Aldis Hodge (Clemency, Straight Outta Compton), and Harriet Dyer (The InBetween) will star. Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Hill House) will play the titular role of The Invisible Man.
The Invisible Man is currently filming in Sydney, Australia with a target release date of February 28th, 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.
