Elizabeth Banks - Brightburn

Elizabeth Banks may not be happy about the box office receipts for Charlie’s Angels, but she’s not giving up the director’s chair just yet.

The Brightburn star will not only direct The Invisible Woman for Universal but star in it too.

The 1940 original was more of a comedy than a horror title that didn’t fall in line with the tone of its thriller counterpart The Invisible Man.

Writer Erin Cressida Wilson who won acclaim for writing The Girl on the Train, already has a draft prepared for this new venture and sources say the story feels like Thelma & Louise meets American Psycho.

This news comes on the heels of upcoming The Invisible Man directed by Leigh Whannell for Blumhouse. That movie is due in February 2020.

Universal is desperately trying to resurrect horror classics from its catalog but has failed miserably as evidenced in 2017’s failure The Mummy.
