Blumhouse and writer-director Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man will be creeping into a theater near you in February 2020. And today we’ve learned that the MPAA has slapped the film with an R-rating for “some strong bloody violence, and language.”
In this new version, Elisabeth Moss plays a woman trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist ( Oliver Jackson-Cohen). She escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge), and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid). But when her abusive ex dies by suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, she suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turn lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, her sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man is written and directed by Leigh Whannell who is also executive producing. Jason Blum produces with Kylie du Fresne. It hits on February 28, 2020.
