Goyer eyes U’s new ‘Invisible’ film

Grazer to produce sequel to Wells classic

Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have set David Goyer to write and direct “The Invisible Man,” a new take on the H.G. Wells classic. Brian Grazer will produce.

Conceived as a sequel to Wells’ original tale, 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.

“I’ve always been a fan of the original H.G. Wells book as well as the Universal film and felt the property was ripe for reimagining,” Goyer said.

Imagine’s David Bernardi and Chris Wade will be involved in a producing capacity.

Goyer, who most recently directed ghost tale “The Invisible” and “Blade: Trinity,” is planning to helm the Sheldon Turner-scripted “X-Men” spinoff “Magneto” for Fox.
