While at Comic-Con, ShockTillYouDrop.com got the opportunity to talk with writer/director David Goyer, and Goyer provided the site with an update on his The Invisible Man project, his sequel to H.G. Wells novel and 1933 film.
“I’m writing it right now,” Goyer told STYD. “I got Universal to hire some conceptual artists for me so they’re working tandem with me writing. The main guy is Jamie Rama, Aaron Sims did some pieces too. Rama is a great conceptual artist who worked on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, he’s one of the primary conceptual artists who worked on the Bat suits.”
Goyer added that the film would pick up months after the events of Wells’ novel (it’s a period piece) and that his take is loaded with historical figures, including WIlliam Melville, head of Scotland Yard and founder of MI6: “He instituted fingerprinting and was friends with Harry Houdini. He’s were the ‘M’ comes from in MI6. In my story, he’s the one who captures the Invisible Man in my story and says, ‘Listen, we want to turn you into a secret agent and send you into Imperial Russia.'”
