Universal Pictures and Blumhouse have brought the release of The Invisible Man forward two weeks. Instead of being released on Friday, March 13th, 2020, the much-anticipated movie will now open on Friday, February 28th, 2020
Oliver Jackson-Cohen is playing the title role in Universal/Blumhouse’s upcoming sci-fi horror movie The Invisible Man which is currently shooting in Sydney, Australia. Jackson-Cohen previously played Luke Crain in the series The Haunting of Hill House and Jonathan Harker in the 2013 Dracula series. Update: Jackson-Cohen will now also appear Mike Flanagan’s new series The Haunting of Bly Manor.
Jackson-Cohen joins the already announced cast of Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Harriet Dyer, and Storm Reid. Leigh Whannell (Upgrade) is directing. The film, loosely based on H.G. Wells 1897 classic novel, has a tentative release date of March 13th, 2020.
Here’s the plotline that’s been released:
“What you can’t see can hurt you. Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (Us, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character.
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria).
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turn lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.”
