‘The Invisible Man’ Gains Harriet Dyer and Aldis Hodge – A Reimagined Ghost Story?

Blumhouse‘s The Invisible Man remake is moving ahead with more cast announcements; Harriet Dyer (The InBetween) and Aldis Hodge (City on a Hill) have signed on over the last few weeks, joining Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Storm Reid (Euphoria) in the contemporary reimagining of the H.G. Wells classic science fiction horror tale.

Helmed by Australian-born Leigh Whannell (Upgrade, the upcoming Escape from New York remake), the narrative will be told somewhat in the fashion of a ghost story, according to the plot synopsis:

The film follows Cecilia, who receives the news of her abusive ex-boyfriend’s suicide. She begins to re-build her life for the better. However, her sense of reality is put into question when she begins to suspect her deceased lover is not actually dead.

Shooting will be taking place in Sydney, Australia next month, according to Deadline with an expected release on the 13th of March 2020.

What do you guys think? With Blumhouse hitting just about every level of thriller, from the well crafted and well received to the…questionable, what’s your take on their handling of the Universal Monster franchise so far?

Do you think they’re in with a chance here or are they (like any other studio) going to have to find their pace before doing the story justice? If The Invisible Man takes off, do you think they have a chance with some other monster titles?
