In addition to Universal rebooting their 'Monster Universe' with a new version of "The Mummy" starring Tom Cruise, the studio will also reboot author H. G. Wells' "The Invisible Man", starring Johnny Depp:

Published in 1897, "The Invisible Man" follows 'Griffin', a scientist consumed with power and fame, becomes the model of science without humanity...

...devoting himself to research into optics, inventing a way to change a body's refractive index to absorb and reflect no light. 

He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but fails in his attempt to reverse it.

Classic Cool Guy Johnny Depp Will Star As Invisible Guy in Cool Reboot of the Classic Invisible Man Story

9 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Johnny Depp, owner of cool hats and glasses, will bring his stylish and theatrical flair to Universal's Invisible Man. Deadline reports the actor is set to star in the reboot's titular role as a researcher who, if in line with H. G. Wells's original character, will turn himself irreversibly invisible, develop a comparable penchant for wide-brimmed headwear and dark-colored specs, and ultimately become a terror. The site notes nothing of helmer or timeline, but producers Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are reportedly getting things going in a writers room. (THR says Men in Black's Ed Solomon could be the main scribe.) The project is definitely part of the studio's initiative to reboot a slew of classic monster flicks in what the trades are describing as a Marvel-esque shared universe — recall the similar Mummy business. But it's also possibly part of a secret campaign to bring back Depp's Willy Wonka »

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Universal Shared Monster Universe is coming together quite nicely, with Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella set to star in their Untitled Mummy Reboot, which is set for release in the summer of 2017. Many have wondered what project will be next for this shared universe, and it seems we may now have our answer.

Johnny Depp Is 'The Invisible Man'

10 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You gotta wonder how much money Universal is paying out to land A-list stars for their brewing mega movie monster cinematic universe. They've already landed Tom Cruise for "The Mummy," and now another big name is set to revive a classic catalog character for the studio. Deadline reports that Johnny Depp will star in "The Invisible Man." And perhaps the most interesting thing is that right now, there's no director attached, which tends to be on the major lures to snag someone like Depp (even for something like "Mortdecai," which was helmed by his pal David Koepp). At any rate, he'll be the guy who gains the power of invisibility but pays a heavy price for his special abilities. The casting is crucial for Universal, who now have two major league, A-list stars to help bring these monsters abroad, which is likely where they are expecting/hoping to read the most box office rewards. »

Universal's Monster reboots just nabbed another A-list star in the form of Johnny Depp -- you may have heard of him! The aggressively quirky thesp will take the "stupid money" once again to (presumably) play the title role in The Invisible Man, the latest announced installment in the studio's interconnected, Marvel-style series of films that will serve up new iterations of iconic silver-screen ghouls including Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and The Wolf Man. Tom Cruise was previously announced as the star of The Mummy. Based on the H.G. Wells novel about a scientist who goes insane after discovering a way to become invisible, the Invisible Man was originally played by Claude Rains in Universal's 1933 version.

All Hail the Scream Queen! Look Back on Emma Roberts's Hollywood Evolution

11 hours ago | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Emma Roberts freaked all of us out during the first season of Scream Queens, but before she was cast as the downright evil queen bee Chanel Oberlin, Emma was just a little girl from a big Hollywood family, growing up in front of the cameras. Emma is the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and the niece of Oscar winner Julia Roberts; she made her big-screen debut playing Johnny Depp's daughter in 2001's Blow and became the star of the Nickelodeon show Unfabulous three years later. Things came full circle for Emma when she starred with her aunt Julia in the 2010 movie Valentine's Day and went on to be featured in two seasons of American Horror Story (she's also slated to pop up in Hotel). As one of creator Ryan Murphy's TV darlings - and with her hilarious recent role on Scream Queens - we wouldn't be surprised if »

Johnny Depp Will Be Universal’s Invisible Man

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting tonight that Johnny Depp will star in Universal’s upcoming remake of The Invisible Man, the next piece in the puzzle of the studio’s new, classic movie monsters universe, which technically began with 2014’s Dracula Untold. We say technically because recent reports have led us to believe that due to that film’s poor performance, the character may be seeing another reboot to fit in with this new cinematic universe.

No word on a director or writer for The Invisiable Man just yet, but Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are the brains behind this planned monsters universe and so far, things are going well it seems.

In addition to Depp, Universal also landed Tom Cruise for The Mummy, which Kurtzman is directing. Also in line for reboots are the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein and the Wolf Man, among others. So, it’s clear that »
