Goyer Doing Invisible, Magneto Next

David Goyer has confirmed that he’s writing a new version of ‘The Invisible Man’ for Universal and his next project could be either that or the ‘Magneto’ movie.

Goyer tells MTV News that the film will be a ‘continuation’ rather than a remake of the classic Claude Rains film with the main character being “a nephew of the first character”. Some of the characters from the H.G. Wells book will also be included.

Goyer claims it’ll push some boundaries – “It’s very steam punk…I took what being invisible could mean to the next logical extreme. We do a lot of crazy things in it that are sort of far beyond what anyone’s done with it yet.”

As for the plot? “It involves Scotland Yard getting their hands on the current Invisible Man and basically saying, ‘Wow, you’d be a really good secret agent to send into Imperial Russia right now.”
