Universal's THE INVISIBLE MAN starring Johnny Depp (TBD)

Johnny Depp To Star In ‘The Invisible Man’ At Universal



Johnny Depp has been set to star in The Invisible Man for Universal Pictures, part of the studio’s new production initiative to reestablish the classic movie monsters that is a cornerstone legacy for the studio. That effort is being led by Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan, who’ll produce.


This has been a big priority for Donna Langley, who has gotten going on two movies so far. They’ve managed a feat that Marvel Studios might envy: With Depp, they’ve now landed two of the biggest global stars in the world, after Tom Cruise was set to star in The Mummy, which Kurtzman will direct for a June 9, 2017, release. The Invisible Man character is an intriguing choice with depth and franchise potential for Depp, who’s coming off a lauded performance as Whitey Bulger in Black Mass and next will star in his other major franchises Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, coming in May, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.


Executive Vice President Jon Mone and Vice President Jay Polidoro will oversee production on behalf of Universal. Depp is represented by UTA and Bloom Hergott.

So is Depp still attached or has all the "Amber Heard" business made him uncastable?

He's out!

Now it comes down to Armie Hammer or Alexander Skarsgard.

The reviews seem solid so far for this film.  I love the 1933 version, as it is a classic of film making, and it still holds up surprisingly well.  It seems like some of the basic element of the story is held onto and given a new twist. I'm looking forward to checking this one out.
