Johnny Depp Joins Tom Cruise In Universal's Monster Movie Universe As THE INVISIBLE MAN
Universal Pictures are really courting the highest level of A-list talent for their upcoming Monster Movie Universe and they've just landed another extremely big fish in the form of 3x Academy Award-nominee Johnny Depp.
Universal's burgeoning Monster Movie Universe is shaping up very nicely indeed, as in addition to Tom Cruise in The Mummy, they've landed another A-lister for The Invisible Man - Johnny Depp!
Deadline is reporting that Depp has signed on to star in The Invisible Man, which will be a reimagining of the 1933 original that starred Claude Rains as a scientist who discovers a way to make himself invisible, but loses his sanity in the process. Further details on the film's development were unavailable, but The Hollywood Reporter adds that Ed Solomon (Men In Black) will likely pen the script. Alex Kurtzman & Chris Morgan, the architects of the Monster Movie Universe, are on-board as producers.
Depp, who recently had an acclaimed turn in Warner Bros.' Black Mass and will be seen next in Walt Disney Pictures' Alice in Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass in May and then again next year as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, now joins another huge star - Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) - in Universal's upcoming Monster Movie Universe.
Cruise, who was recently confirmed to star in The Mummy, will launch the Monster Movie Universe on June 9, 2017 and is rumored to play a major role in the future of the universe. Successfully landing Cruise & Depp is quite the major coup for Universal as they've now signed two of the biggest megastars in the world, both of whom carry a ton of international box office appeal with their names. Also, if previous rumors are to be believed, this universe could get even more A-list talent as there's an outside chance Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) will eventually join them as the Bride Of Frankenstein.
