Sequel to Wells’ novel
Universal appears to be struck with classic monster fever again. In the works: Mark Romanek’s “The Wolf Man” and a third “Mummy” film. Add “The Invisible Man” to the list.
David Goyer, who recently saw the release of the teen thriller “The Invisible,” is attached to write and direct what is being called an update and sequel to H.G. Wells’ original novel.
This tale, a period piece set during World War II, will find the original Invisible Man’s nephew discovering his uncle’s formula. With his newfound power he enters into Britain’s intelligence agency MI5.
No word yet on when Goyer will begin since he is also committed to Marvel’s upcoming “Magneto” spin-off film.
