"The Haunting of the Hill House" star Oliver Jackson-Cohen is set to play the lead role in "The Invisible Man" movie. The Blumhouse-Universal Pictures project will be written, directed and executive produced by Leigh Whannell, reported Variety.
The film is about Universal Pictures' classic monster character, first portrayed by Claude Rains in the studio's 1933 film. The story was based on H G Wells' science-fiction novel about a chemist who has discovered the secret of invisibility while conducting a series of tests involving an obscure drug called monocane.
