With an estimated $ 49.2 million at the international box office in its first weekend and special critical acclaim, The Invisible Man has become a resounding success for Blumhouse Productions. With this, the inevitable question is: can there be a sequel?
Director Leah Whitnell (Upgrade: Killer Machine), who has participated as a screenwriter in the making of The Game of Fear and Night of the Demon franchises, talked about her status as an Entertainment Weekly sequel.
The Best Australian filmmaker admitted that he had never thought of it when he developed The Invisible Man, although, given his vocabulary, it seems that the possibility has not been ruled out.
The film stars Elisabeth Moss (The Meds Tale) as Cecilia Cass, a woman who runs away from home and shares it with her abusive boyfriend Adrian Griffin (Oliver Jackson-Cohen). Things take an unexpected turn when they inform you that Adrian has committed suicide, but has given him a generous fortune.
Her peace is soon interrupted when she begins to be disturbed by something she cannot see, leading her to suspect that her ex-boyfriend is not dead.
Leah Wonnell wrote, directed and starred as executive producer of The Invisible Man, which also features Aldis Hodge, Harriet Dyer, and Storm Reid. Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions co-produced the film with Kylie du Fresne of Goalpost Pictures Australia. It is a remake of the 1933 classic by James Whale, based on the homemaker novel written by H.G. Wells.
Then, on the other hand, Leah Whitnell set aside any idea of a sequel to an invisible man while doing The Invisible Man, and it seems he lives on the very big screen. As indicated by his final remarks, one has to consult with him after seeing what he thinks of The Invisible Man 2’s chances by The Invisible Man.
