Blumhouse’s INVISIBLE MAN Remake Sets Sights on Elizabeth Moss

He might not seem like a truly terrifying villain in today’s
age of titans and slashers, but Dr. Jack Griffin from Universal’s original The
Invisible Man
(1931) has a whopping kill count of 122 victims! That puts
him ahead of Chucky, Freddy, and Michael Myers (among many others); only good
old Jason Voorhees has him beat with 146 confirmed victims since 1980.

So, there’s all the reason in the world to assume that the current Invisible Man reboot brewing at Blumhouse will be a deliciously bloody affair. And while we don’t know who will be playing Dr. Griffin, we know who may just be playing the object of his desire: Elizabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale, Us). Variety got the exclusive.

Sources say the
negotiations are in the extremely early stages, but if they were to move
forward, Moss would star in the film with Upgrade
filmmaker Leigh Whannell writing and directing. Sources also indicate that
Johnny Depp, who was originally tapped to play the title character, will not be
involved.
