The Blumhouse-Universal reboot of The Invisible Man just added two new visible costars. Aldis Hodge and Harriet Dyer will join Elisabeth Moss and Storm Reid in the horror film, which is being directed by Leigh Whannell. After Universal failed to get their Dark Universe off the ground, they’re not taking a much different approach, allowing individual stories to stand on their own. The new Invisible Man will be an update of the 1933 film of the same name.

The Invisible Man

Just last month, we learned Jason Blum and his über-successful Bluhouse Productions banner were tackling a remake of The Invisible Man, the first in what could be many revamps of Universal’s classic movie monsters. The Dark Universe that began with Tom Cruise’s The Mummy in 2017 is dead, which means they’re taking a whole new approach to some of horror’s most revered monsters. Producer Jason Blum has opened up about how The Invisible Man deal came about and teased a hopeful future for the rest of the Universal monsters.

Meanwhile, Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander is already trying to get on board the Universal monsters retooling with an idea for The Mummy reboot. Alexander has pitched the idea to the studio, but she’s not confident it’ll get picked up, so she teased what it’s all about for those curious. Read More »

The Dark Universe is rising from the grave! Sort of! Almost two years after Tom Cruise’s The Mummy both launched and killed Universal’s monster cinematic universe in one fell swoop, Blumhouse is set to take over with a new version of The Invisible Man. Leigh Whannell, who helmed the kick-ass horror action flick Upgrade, will direct. At one point, Johnny Depp was attached to star – but that’s no longer the case. This is going to be a fresh start.

Cinematic universes are all the rage right now.

Which is why it was met with little surprise — but much chagrin — when Universal Studios announced their plans to create a movie franchise out of classic monster movie reboots. Another cinematic universe? Haven’t we had enough interconnected franchises, with Marvel and DC at each other’s throats over superhero sequels, Warner Bros creating their own MonsterVerse with Godzilla and King Kong, and whatever the heck is going on with that Man in Black/21 Jump Street crossover?

But producer Chris Morgan, one of the minds behind the whole Universal Monsters operation, assures audiences that Universal’s movie universe will be as different from the MCU and DCEU as possible.

Universal Monsters Movie Universe

Last year it was revealed that Fast and the Furious producer Chris Morgan was teaming with screenwriter/director Alex Kurtzman to design a Universal Monsters cinematic universe. The plan was to reboot the Universal Monsters properties, including characters such as Dracula, The Wolf Man, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, and Creature from the Black Lagoon, each with their own movies leading to an Avengers-type film that would bring them all together.

The trailer for the first film in the series, The Mummy starring Tom Cruise, was released over the weekend, giving us a first look at the Universal Monster movie universe. I had the opportunity to talk with director Alex Kurtzman about the creation of this world, what their intentions are, how they hope to bring it all together and more. Please note the headline comparison to Marvel is my own, not Kurtzman’s. Although I think its obvious that Kurtzman’s opinion on building a cinematic movie universe seem to closely reflect Marvel Studios’ own philosophies and approach.
