Hot on the heels of the smash hit The Invisible Man film release in 2020, now a new version of the story is on the way.
Leigh Whannall’s take on The Invisible Man, released in 2020, was a blockbuster of a hit, taking over $140 million on a budget of just $7 million. It was, you might recall, the last big hit movie before the pandemic hit too.
Now, a new version is on the way (of the story, not of the pandemic, touch wood). As reported by Deadline, The Dead Thing is “billed as a neo-realist take on an Invisible Man story and a modern urban legend for the online dating era, the film follows a young woman who, lost in a string of meaningless hookups, falls in love with a sensitive and charismatic man who she soon discovers harbors a dark secret that turns their affair into a twisted obsession”.
Blu Hunt will headline the film, alongside Ben Smith-Petersen, John Karna and Katherine Hughes.
Elric Kane makes his directorial debut with the movie, working from a screenplay he co-wrote with Webb Wilcoxen.
The Dead Thing recently wrapped production in Los Angeles, we’ll update you as we hear more.
