With the updated Charlie’s Angels not being the hit that was hoped, Elizabeth Banks may have wished that she was The Invisible Woman – and her wish has been granted!
Yes, Banks is set to both direct and star in a new take on the classic monster horror story The Invisible Woman, as part of Universal’s Dark Universe, and she’ll have a pal in The Invisible Man, which is also in production.
That one has Blumhouse and Leigh Whannell behind it, and stars Elisabeth Moss playing a widow who’s haunted by the invisible presence of her dead husband. It’s set to hit cinemas in February 2020.
Then there’s Dark Army from Paul Feig, which is set to feature a collection of classic movie monsters, as well as a tale centred on Count Dracula’s henchman Renfield, from director Dexter Fletcher.
If that’s not enough, James Wan is apparently in talks to revive Frankenstein.
So, plenty of Universal monsters are on their way – and hopefully they’re better than that forgettable Tom Cruise take on The Mummy.
