David Goyer at the San Diego Comic-Con has reprted that the his new take on the H.G. Wells classic at Universal Pictures, The Invisible Man. 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.
During a interview he had this to say about the upcoming movie:
'I went back to Universal and I asked them if they were doing anything with the character. They said 'no' so I told them I had this take,' he says. 'Universal gets it's meant to be like what Steven Sommers did with The Mummy. It's a big world. Very steampunk. They're doing the The Wolfman and trying to do the Creature from the Black Lagoon, they're really interested in this. The good news is Rogue is also Universal, and Rogue is really happy with The Unborn,so I think I have to really f**k up the script for them to not want to make it.'
