The Haunting of Hill House’s Oliver Jackson-Cohen Joins ‘Invisible Man’

The Haunting of Hill House

After escaping one messed up haunted house, Oliver Jackson-Cohen is becoming the “Invisible Man“. More within…

After Universal Pictures‘ “Dark Universe” flamed out after one film, Blumhouse Productions stepped up to revitalize at least one member of that universe, “The Invisible Man“. Since then, they cast The Handmaid’s Tale‘s Elisabeth Moss and A Wrinkle in Time‘s Storm Reid.

Today, they’ve cast their “Invisible Man”.

In a report by THR, Blumhouse has cast The Haunting of Hill House‘s Oliver Jackson-Cohen to play the transparent monster. Previously, that mantle was held by Johnny Depp.

Jackson-Cohen became more well-known after his powerful role in Netflix‘s The Haunting of Hill House. He played a troubled, drug-addicted twin, haunted by what he saw as a child and his twin sister’s death. Before that, Jackson-Cohen appeared in roles for the BBC drama Man in an Orange Shirt and the NBC Oz reimagining Emerald City.

Blumhouse‘s “Invisible Man” is written by “Saw” co-creator Leigh Whannel and is set to begin production in Sydney, Australia later this month.

The “Invisible Man” releases in theaters on March 13, 2020.
