Oliver Jackson-Cohen to replace Johnny Depp in The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man Reboot Has Found Its, Uh, Invisible Man

The Invisible Man Reboot Has Found Its, Uh, Invisible Man

Back when Universal planned on creating a shared universe from their classic monster properties (the "Dark Universe"), the film was to be a more faithful recreation of the 1933 classic, in which a scientist goes mad after discovering the formula for invisibility and embarks on a reign of terror, bent on taking over the world. Although it has not yet been given an official release date, The Invisible Man is expected to begin production in Australia later this month.

Deadline reports that Oliver Jackson-Cohen has landed the main role in The Invisible Man. That movie featured Tom Cruise as Nick Morton, Sofia Boutella as Ahmanet, Russell Crowe as Henry Jekyll, and Annabelle Wallis as Jenny Halsey. Universal is now working on the films individually, with The Invisible Man leading the charge.

If The Invisible Man is successful it will be interesting to see if that reinvigorates interest in the other classic monsters that are sitting on the shelf. Do you think he will make a good Invisible Man?

"It's not dependent on special effects, CGI, stunts", he told Collider. It's super character-driven, it's really compelling, it's trilling, it's edgy, it feels new. And it happened to be an Invisible Man story, so it checked both boxes. Previously, that mantle was held by Johnny Depp. The cast includes Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale), Aldis Hodge (City on a Hill), Harriet Dyer (The InBetween), and Storm Reid (A Wrinkle in Time).

Jackson-Cohen stars as Luke Crain in the Netflix series "The Haunting of Hill House", which has been set for a second season. After the poor domestic showing of "The Mummy", many believed that all future plans for the Dark Universe would be cancelled, but Universal Pictures is pushing forward with hopes of creating a series of connected films like Marvel, Star Wars, and DC Comics.
