The story is based on an original idea from Feig but no specific plot details have been revealed. Reports suggest that characters from Universal’s classic monster library and original characters created by Feig will be included. Feig and Laura Fischer will produce through his Universal-based Feigco Productions.
After a disastrous start to the Dark Universe with the Tom Cruise led ‘The Mummy’, Universal dropped the idea of an interconnected universe. Universal are now favouring filmmaker passion that has connective tissue to Uni’s Classic Monsters legacy which will see Leigh Whannell’s ‘The Invisible Man’ kick-start the monster universe. Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions take the gauntlet to push things forward with ‘The Invisible Man’. Having Whannell on board to write, produce and direct the reboot.
