Leigh Whannell has signed on to direct an Invisible Man movie with Jason Blum on board to produce under the ever growing Blumhouse.
As we know, the pair recently worked together on Upgrade as well as Adam Robitel’s Insidious: The Last Key.
Variety exclusively shared the news:
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.
Throughout cinematic history, Universal’s classic monsters have been reinvented through the prism of each new filmmaker who brought these characters to life,” said Peter Cramer, Universal’s president of production. “We are excited to take a more individualized approach for their return to screen, shepherded by creators who have stories they are passionate to tell with them.”
