Elisabeth Moss Officially Set to Star in Universal-Blumhouse's THE INVISIBLE MAN
Elisabeth Moss has been in talks to star in the Universal-Blumhouse reboot of The Invisible Man for a bit, and they have finally solidified her involvement. There is no plot yet available, and no one else cast in the film so far, However it was previously rumored that Armie Hammer (Man From U.N.C.L.E.) and Alexander Skarsgard (Tarzan) are up for the male lead.
We do know that this will be a reboot of the original 1933 film, and many of the films and series since then, which were all based on the 1897 H.G. Wells novel. We will have to see how much this new film pulls from the other iterations, but with Moss on the screen, we know they are right on in their casting so far.
It was also previously revealed that the lead male role in the story is named Adrian Griffin, who is described as “a billionaire sociopath who made his money by developing an invisibility suit for the Department of Defense.” Moss is said to take on the role of a character named Cecilia Kass.
The Invisible Man will be directed by Leigh Whannell, who wrote and produced and starred in many of the Saw movies. This will be part of Universal’s Dark Universe of movies. We will let you know when we know more about the casting and story.
