With Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man one of the most hotly anticipated genre movies of 2020, we now have word that Universal is also developing a new Invisible Woman picture.
Courtesy of Deadline, Elizabeth Banks made an original pitch to Universal, who have since tasked her with starring in and directing this new Invisible Woman. Banks, who has starred in the likes of BrightBurn and Power Rangers, made her directing debut with the 2011 short Just a Little Hart Attack, and has since gone on to direct Pitch Perfect 2 and Charlie’s Angels. For The Invisiable Woman, The Girl on the Train’s Erin Cressida Wilson is on writing duties.
Early rumblings on the film have it pegged as Thelma & Louse meets American Psycho – which sounds all kinds of fantastic to us!
Whannell’s The Invisible Man is hitting cinemas in February, and then Universal has recently green-lit Saw and Aquaman’s James Wan to produce a new Frankenstein, and Bohemian Rhapsody’s Dexter Fletcher is to direct a movie centred on Dracula’s long-time assistant, Renfield.
Expect more on all of these projects as they continue to develop.
