Not not a remake, but more of a follow-up. According to Variety, the project is thought of as a sequel: "The story centers on a British nephew of the original Invisible Man. Once he discovers his uncle’s formula for achieving invisibility, he is recruited by British intelligence agency MI5 during WWII."
Universal wants Goyer to write and direct the new "Invisible Man" movie. He’ll also be doing that "Magneto" spinoff for Fox. No word yet on who’ll be cast in the "invisible" title role, but I vote for Christopher Walken. Why not?
