“It is unclear where the movie stands in terms of development,” says the Hollywood Reporter. There is no director attached at this stage. The studio has a writers room with elite scribes, … who are tackling reboots of the entire line of Universal’s classic monsters; sources say Ed Solomon, best known for writing ‘Men in Black’ and ‘Now You See Me,’ is writing ‘Invisible Man.’
“In the original, Rains played a chemist who uses a dangerous drug to turn invisible. The transformation leaves him jealous, paranoid and psychotic and leads to a killing spree. The movie spawned several sequels.”
Tom Cruise already is set to star in Univrsal’s reboot of “The Mummy,” which had social media crying Mommy.
