Writer Ed Solomon No Longer Working on The Invisible Man

Posted on: January 28th, 2018

Universal’s Dark Universe has been a rollercoaster ride since before the first film – The Mummy – was even released, and it seems as though the ride is showing no signs of slowing down. After the disappointment that was 2017’s The Mummy, Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan jumped ship and now Ed Solomon has joined them.

Solomon was originally tied to writing the script for The Invisible Man, but due to creative differences he has now left the project. When speaking to Digital Spy, he said:
At the end of the day, I think Universal and I had a different idea of what the movie was gunna be. We began thinking that our notions would meld, and I should’ve listened more closely to what they really were wanting. I think Universal has had to come to a kind of reckoning of, ‘What are we doing with the Dark Universe?’ and, ‘What is our real intention with it?’, and I think they’re reconfiguring it now, which I think is probably good. So I’m not working on it

As he says, it’s good that Universal is reconfiguring the universe, because it got off to a messy, dull and disastrous start with the Tom Cruise-starrer. The future of the Dark Universe is uncertain, but hopefully there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.
