The thriller drama is written, directed and produced by Leigh Whannell, who also wrote, directed and executive produced the 2018 sci-fi thriller 'Upgrade, ' and who also wrote and produced the famous 'Insidious: The Last Key'. "That would be weird", Moss told The Hollywood Reporter. The filmmakers reportedly liked Jackson-Cohen's performance in the show, which helped him land his latest role. As you can see, he is no stranger to horror either.More news: Ex-Red Sox slugger David Ortiz recovering from 3rd surgery
The hiring of Cohen completes The Invisible Man's main cast, and frankly, we were beginning to wonder if the movie's antagonist was actually going to stay invisible (and silent) for its entire run time. Or better yet, did he really become invisible or is it more like a metaphor? After the poor domestic showing of "The Mummy", many believed that all future plans for the Dark Universe would be cancelled, but Universal Pictures is pushing forward with hopes of creating a series of connected films like Marvel, Star Wars, and DC Comics. With Depp out of the picture and "The Mummy" a miss with audiences, "The Invisible Man" could be a standalone movie at this point, and depending on the reaction, could be the start of a new interconnected franchise.
