    The Invisible Man Reboot In The Works

    "“Upgrade” director Leigh Whannell has signed on to direct a reboot of “The Invisible Man.” The project reunites Whannell with Jason Blum, who is producing the Universal Pictures movie through his Blumhouse banner.

    The move is part of a fresh strategy for Universal’s monsters properties, bringing creative directors with distinctive visions to the classic characters.

    Whannell, who is co-producing, has previously worked with Blumhouse Productions on hit films including “Insidious: The Last Key” and “Upgrade.” Johnny Depp was previously attached to “The Invisible Man,” but sources say he will not appear in this film. He may be featured in another one of the monster movie projects in development, sources say.

    Universal has tabled the idea of an interconnected universe and is reassessing how to keep the enduring characters relevant for a new generation. Sources tell Variety that Universal remains committed to creating compelling filmmaker-driven projects based on characters from the studio’s vast monsters legacy."

    I find it amusing that they say Johnny Depp will not be appearing in the film. Isn’t that kind of the point of an invisible man film?

    It looks pretty good. Probably won't be as fun as Hollow Man though.

    Hollow Man had Rhona Mitra’s tits in her prime, nothing would improve on that!

    HOLLOW MAN kinda sucked. An 80 minute movie stretched to nearly 2 hours.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    All I need to rewatch is about two minutes of it, so I’d agree!

    There's an effect in that trailer that is very reminiscent of Hollow Man. Hollow Man rules, by the way.
