Haunting of Hill House’s Oliver Jackson-Cohen to Play the Invisible Man

Hill House star Oliver Jackson Cohen lands title role in The Invisible ManMore

The Invisible Man will begin production this month in Australia with a pretty excellent cast that includes Elisabeth Moss, Storm Reid, Aldis Hodge, and Harriet Dyer.

The Haunting Of Hill House star Oliver Jackson-Cohen has stepped in to replace Johnny Depp in "The Invisible Man" remake. One of the streaming service's biggest success stories of previous year, Hill House was unanimously praised for the strength of its ensemble cast, of which Jackson-Cohen was a huge part. The filmmakers reportedly liked Jackson-Cohen's performance in the show, which helped him land his latest role. His TV credits include Man in an Orange Shirt, Emerald City, Dracula, and Mr. Selfridge, and he has appeared in the films The Healer, The Raven, What's Your Number? Jackson-Cohen also starred alongside Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton in the 2010 action film Faster.

The story of The Invisible Man centers around a woman named Cecilia, who learns her abusive ex-boyfriend committed suicide. Sadly, these creatures have gone through failed attempts to revive or modernize their stories, but with the horror genre going through a very successful phase, Universal's Dark Universe is getting another chance, and next in line is a reboot of The Invisible Man.

The project, helmed by actor/filmmaker Leigh Whannell, will not be part of any kind of connected universe and is said to be highly character driven, as opposed to something flashy with a huge budget.

The Invisible Man will be written, directed and executive produced by frequent James Wan collaborator Leigh Whannell, who has long history with horror films and has found success with the Saw and Insidious franchises.
