The Invisible Man is a 2020 Australian-American sci-fi horror film written and directed by Leigh Whannell. The film is a contemporary adaptation of the novel of the same name by H. G. Wells, and is a reboot of The Invisible Man film series. The film stars Elisabeth MossAldis HodgeStorm ReidHarriet Dyer, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen, and follows a woman who believes she is being haunted by her abusive husband, despite him apparently having died. It is an international co-production of the United States and Australia.

The development of a new Invisible Man film began as early as 2007. The project was announced to be revived as part of Universal’s shared cinematic universe in 2016, intended to consist of their classic monsters. After The Mummy was released in 2017, development was halted in all projects. In early 2019, the studio changed their plans from a serialized universe to films based on individualized story-telling, and the project reentered development. Leigh Whannell serves as director and writer. Principal photography commenced in July 2019 and wrapped in September 2019 in SydneyAustralia.

The Invisible Man is scheduled to be released in the United States on February 28, 2020, by Universal Pictures. The film received positive reviews from critics, with praise for Moss’s performance and the combination of scares and “a smart narrative about how women can be manipulated and abused in harmful relationships”.

Premise

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist (Oliver Jackson-Cohen), Cecilia Kass (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid).

But when Cecilia’s abusive ex 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.—Universal Pictures
