Storm Reid Joins Elisabeth Moss in 'Invisible Man' Remake for Universal, Blumhouse
Storm Reid has boarded the The Invisible Man remake in the works from Universal and Blumhouse Productions, with Insidious and Saw mastermind Leigh Whannell earlier attached to direct and Elisabeth Moss to co-star, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The Invisible Man originated from the H.G. Wells novel that was adapted into the 1933 black-and-white classic starring Claude Rains. Reid will play the role of Sydney, opposite Moss in the remake inspired by the classic Universal monster tale, and to be produced by Jason Blum and Whannell.
The rising actress earlier nabbed the lead role in A Wrinkle in Time, Ava DuVernay and Disney’s adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic children’s book of the same name. Reid made her film debut in the Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave, in which she appeared with Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Moss recently spoke to THR about the film, saying, "Part of the reason why I wanted to do it is I actually felt like it was a really feminist story of female empowerment and a victim kind of overcoming something."
Reid is also set to appear in the Netflix limited series When They See Us and the HBO series Euphoria.
She is repped by CAA and Management 360
