Elizabeth Banks to star in and direct The Invisible Woman movie
Now you see her…
Following her directing and acting function on the Charlie’s Angels movie, Elizabeth Banks will currently helm and celebrity in The Invisible Woman for Universal Pictures, EW has learned.
Nowthis isn’t to be mistaken with The Invisible Man, that is directed by Leigh Whannell and stars Elisabeth Moss as a girl plagued with her violent and recently invisible ex (played with Oliver Jackson-Cohen). It is certainly in the vein of the kind of horror stories the studio is growing with Blumhouse, however The Invisible Woman is not a Blumhouse job.
The movie is a separate Universal release, based on an original concept by Banks. The Girl on the Train screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson penned the latest draft of the screenplay, while her producing partner at Brownstone Productions, Max Handelman, will produce. Alison Small will executive-produce.
1940 saw the launch of The Invisible Woman as a sci-fi humor, following a model who agrees to become a guinea pig for an experiment between an invisibility machine. She uses her transparency that is \to take revenge on her old boss.
This news comes after reports recently surfaced Rocketman manager Dexter Fletcher helming Renfield, a movie said to be approximately Dracula’s henchman.
Banks left her directorial debut on 2015’s Pitch Perfect two before directing Kristen Stewart, Aladdin‘s Naomi Scott, and Hunted‘s Ella Balinska in Charlie’s Angels. The movie underperformed at the box office after debuting Nov. 15, however, Banks wrote in a tweet,”Well, if you are going to have a flop, then make sure your name is on it at least 4x. I’m proud of #CharliesAngels and happy it is from the world.”
