Oliver Jackson-Cohen Is The Invisible Man in Blumhouse’s Remake
Oliver Jackson-Cohen should play in the next remake of The Invisible Man . Cohen will join previously announced cast members Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Harriet Dyer and Storm Reid. The remake is ready to begin production and its release date is set early next year. Leigh Whannell, co-creator of Saw wrote the script and directs the film, which will be shot in Sydney, Australia, later this month. Universal Monster fans have long been waiting to know who will take the lead in the remake of Invisible Man .
Oliver Jackson-Cohen is probably best known for his character Luke Crain on The Fear of Hill House . His other credits include Man of the BBC, a series of NBC Emerald City and the NBC Dracula series. It is thought that Jackson-Cohen's work on The Haunting of Hill House is the reason why the producers decided to work with him. Anyway, it's a big break for the actor. Johnny Depp would play the lead role in the upcoming movie before Tom Cruise's The Mummy resonated at the box office and The Dark Universe collapsed, resulting in a low-budget reboot .
According to rumors, Armie Hammer and Alexander Skarsgard would be in the running for Blumhouse The Invisible Man nomination and at some point it was thought that Elisabeth Moss would assume the leading role it is the invisible woman. However, this particular rumor has been refuted and Skarsgard and Hammer obviously do not play the main role. The remake is considered a new twist of classical history and was originally intended to be published in the dark universe of Universal, as mentioned before.

Jason Blum recently talked about the remake of Invisible Man and indicated that it would be character-driven and achieved with a lower budget, similar to their other projects. Instead of a bunch of special effects, the focus will be on new twists and turns. "It's really fascinating, it's exciting, it's nervous, you feel new," says Blumhouse of the remake. With regard to the aforementioned turn, no one is for the moment safe. That said, we should all know it soon enough because the film will be released in theaters in March of next year.
With Blumhouse involved and his low rate of budget success, The Invisible Man could well become another hit for the studio. Jason Blum is currently producing the remake of Goalpost Pictures' Blumhouse Productions and Kylie du Fresne ( Upgrade ), in association with Nervous Tick for Universal Pictures. Leigh Whannell will be the executive producer in addition to writing and directing the project. The Invisible Man is based on the classic novel by HG Wells and, at the present time, there is great hope that the studio will be able to make it a hit for a new generation of fans. For the moment, we will have to wait and see. The deadline was the first to report the Invisible Man .
