  • Hill House star Oliver Jackson Cohen lands title role in The Invisible ManMore

Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale), Storm Reid (A Wrinkle In Time, 12 Years a Slave), Aldis Hodge (Clemency, Straight Outta Compton), and Harriet Dyer (The InBetween) will star. Sadly, these creatures have gone through failed attempts to revive or modernize their stories, but with the horror genre going through a very successful phase, Universal's Dark Universe is getting another chance, and next in line is a reboot of The Invisible Man.

"The Haunting of the Hill House" star Oliver Jackson-Cohen is set to play the lead role in "The Invisible Man" movie. "That would be weird", Moss told The Hollywood Reporter. Leigh Whannell is directing, writing and executive producing the movie, which is scheduled to hit theaters on March 13, 2020. Filming on the project is expected to start later this month.

According to Deadline, Jackson-Cohen is taking over the role that was originally meant for Johnny Depp. Jackson-Cohen's other credits include the BBC drama Man In an Orange Shirt, as well as films like The Healer and The Raven. As you can see, he is no stranger to horror either.

We've gotten a good amount of casting information for Blumhouse and Universal's remake of the seminal classic The Invisible Man, but the titular role has remained vacant-until now. Picking up the pieces to rebuild her life for the better, she soon begins to question her sense of reality as she suspects her deceased former lover is not actually gone.

Today, they've cast their "Invisible Man". 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. Let us know in the comments.
