Never one to pass up on new projects, David Goyer has added yet another film project to his already extensive development slate. The director has committed to writing and directing what will likely be a sequel to the H.G. Wells classic The Invisible Man.
Goyer insists the story will go on in a different direction from the book, stating that the only connection will be that the main character will be a nephew of the original Invisible Man. Plot goes as follows:
After discovering his uncle’s invisible formula, he (nephew) is recruited by MI5 (British Intelligence) during World War II.
Goyer had the following to say about the Universal Pictures/Imagine Entertainment backed film (with Brian Grazer producing): “I’ve always been a fan of the original H.G. Wells book as well as the Universal film and felt the property was ripe for reimagining.”
It’s definitely fair to question whether this movie will ever get off the ground, considering Goyer has his mitts on many different upcoming projects. Goyer currently is set to write/direct the X-Men spin off Magneto and is also currently helping Justin Marx write Supermax, the Green Arrow based feature.
