New Story Details For Universal's THE INVISIBLE MAN and Armie Hammer and Alexander Skarsgard Are Up for the Lead Role
Universal Pictures is on the verge of launching a whole new series of films based on their classic monster franchises. This is all going to start with The Invisible Man, and today we have some new details to share with you involving the story and the possible cast.
It was already reported that Elisabeth Moss was up for the female lead and now we’ve learned from That Hashtag Show that Armie Hammer (Man From U.N.C.L.E.) and Alexander Skarsgard (Tarzan) are up for the male lead.
The also revealed some interesting new story details regarding the film. 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 will take on the role of a character named Cecilia Kass.
I assume the development of the invisibility suit backfires and ends up turning him invisible. I assume the movie is going to be a contemporary take on the story, which is disappointing because I like the idea of a period piece a lot more. We’ll just have to wait and see how it turns out.
The Invisible Man will be written and directed by Leigh Wannell and produced by Jason Blum. It will also start production this May.
