Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have set David Goyer to write and direct a new take on the H.G. Wells classic “The Invisible Man” reports Variety.
Conceived as a sequel to Wells’ original tale, the story centers on a British nephew of the original Invisible Man.
Once he discovers his uncle’s formula for achieving invisibility, he is recruited by British intelligence agency MI5 during WWII.
Brian Grazer will produce. Goyer recently directed “The Invisible,” “Blade: Trinity,” and is planning to helm “X-Men” spinoff “Magneto.”
