Oliver Jackson-Cohen Nabs Title Role in ‘Invisible Man’

According to a report on Deadline, The Haunting of Hill House actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen has landed the lead role in Universale/Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man. Jackson-Cohen joins an already impressive cast which consists of Elisabeth Moss, Storm Reid, Aldis Hodge, Sam Smith and Harriet Dyer.

Even though The Invisible Man will be distributed through Universal it will not be a part of their Dark Universe. Universal had hoped to shape a cinematic universe based on the beloved classic monsters but its initial entry The Mummy, which starred Tom Cruise stumbled out of the gate and crashed hard enough to wipe out the entire Dark Universe idea. Despite the film being the biggest global opening for Tom Cruise, Deadline estimated that the film lost the studio $95 million.

Leigh Whannell (SAW, Insidious) is directing the feature which has just started production at Fox Studios in Sydney, Australia. The release date is slated for March 13, 2020. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for the latest on The Invisible Man.
