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.
We’ll keep you posted as additional Invisible Man details emerge. Stay tuned!
