Elizabeth Banks to direct ‘Invisible Woman’


Los Angeles, Nov 27 (IANS) Actress Elizabeth Banks will be starring in and directing a horror movie titled “Invisible Woman”.

Banks is developing an original take based on the classic Universal title and is attached to star in and direct the feature project. She also will produce along with her husband Max Handelman via the duo’s Brownstone Productions, reports

The 1940 original was centered on a department store model who becomes the test subject of an invisibility experiment. Upon becoming invisible, she gets back against her mean boss but unwittingly falls into a caper involving gangsters.


“The Invisible Woman” was in the screwball comedy mold and followed “The Invisible Man” and “The Invisible Man Returns”, which were more horror thrillers in line with now-classic horror titles.

Erin Cressida Wilson, who penned “The Girl on the Train”, wrote the current draft of the script. Sources say the tone of the project is “Thelma & Louise” meets “American Psycho”.


Banks made her directorial debut with 2015’s “Pitch Perfect 2” and is coming off of reboot of “Charlie’s Angels”.
