"The Invisible Man" is a new take on the H.G. Wells classic. Conceived as a sequel to Wells' original tale, the story centers on a British nephew of the original Invisible Man. Once he discovers his uncle's formula for achieving invisibility, he is recruited by British intelligence agency MI5 during WWII.
The plan is for The Invisible Man to be part of a shared monster universe that will launch with Kurtzman’s The Mummy. Set to hit theaters June 9, 2017, The Mummy boasts a screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) and stars Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella as the title monster.
