Blumhouse & Leigh Whannell's Invisible Man shoots this year

A week or so ago we passed along the killer news that Blumhouse is taking over Universal's DARK UNIVERSE of horror movie monsters, and they plan to kick off the new series of movies with UPGRADE and INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 writer-director Leigh Whannell's take on THE INVISIBLE MAN.

And today it looks like we have word via Blumhouse head honcho Jason Blum himself that the movie is heading our way sooner than we expected. Blum recently spoke to CinemaBlend about his new slasher sequel HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U and spilled the beans that Whannell's INVISIBLE MAN will be shooting this year. Specifically, Blum says:

We're going to shoot it this year, and I can't wait for people to see it.

Sounds good to me! Now all I want to know - even more than who's, you know, playing the title character - is whether or not Blumhouse and Whannell plan for this to be a PG-13 or an R-rated venture. Universal previously said they would not be imposing mandates on ratings or budget, but considering Whannell's gone PG-13 with INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3 and hard f*cking R with UPGRADE, I'm wondering which side of the fence this falls on.

I guess we'll see soon enough!

We'll let you know when we hear more on Blumhouse's rebooted Dark Universe. Hopefully, we get more info on Lexi Alexander's THE MUMMY soon too. Fingers crossed. Until then, make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think of this epic news in the comments section below!
