Oliver Jackson-Cohen is Universal’s New Invisible Man

The Invisible Man Reboot Has Found Its, Uh, Invisible Man

We've gotten a good amount of casting information for Blumhouse and Universal's remake of the seminal classic The Invisible Man, but the titular role has remained vacant-until now.

Universal have wisely rethought their approach to rebooting the studio's stable of classic monsters in the wake of the Dark Universe debacle. For The Haunting of Hill House star Oliver Jackson-Cohen, this is a bit more literal.

It's unclear exactly what the twist on The Invisible Man is for this new film, but there is one. Even if The Invisible Man isn't part of a larger cinematic universe, that doesn't mean that franchise possibilities won't exist.

Angela Merkel opts to sit at ceremony after third bout of shaking
Medical experts have played down speculation about the shaking, saying there are multiple potential causes of tremor. Merkel, who turns 65 next week, said with a smile that every birthday made her aware that she is getting older.

"It's not dependent on special effects, CGI, stunts", he told Collider. It's super character-driven, it's really compelling, it's thrilling, it's edgy, it feels new. Although it has not yet been given an official release date, The Invisible Man is expected to begin production in Australia later this month. Those were all things that felt like they fit with what our company does. That version would have starred Johnny Depp, would have cost a gazillion dollars to produce, and likely would have flopped just as hard as 2017's The Mummy, the Tom Cruise starrer which was supposed to kick off the whole shebang.

On the bright side, it will be hard for "The Invisible Man" to get a lower Rotten Tomatoes score than "The Mummy", but the studio will need a lot of marketing to convince people to give the film a chance on opening weekend.

Oliver Jackson-Cohen joins a cast that includes Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Harriet Dyer and Storm Reid. After the poor domestic showing of "The Mummy", many believed that all future plans for the Dark Universe would be cancelled, but Universal Pictures is pushing forward with hopes of creating a series of connected films like Marvel, Star Wars, and DC Comics.
