The remake of The Invisible Man is proving to be rather different from the original.

Not least of all because the main character is actually a woman.

Elisabeth Moss is set to star in the new version of the 1933 film (which was based on the novel of the same name by H.G. Wells). It has now been confirmed that she will be joined by Storm Reid of A Wrinkle in Time.

According to Deadline, The Handmaid’s Tale actress will play Cecilia, who receives news of her abusive ex-boyfriend’s suicide. She begins to re-build her life for the better, but her sense of reality is put into question when she begins to suspect her deceased lover is not actually dead.

Going by the title of the movie, we can assume that Cecilia’s ex is alive — but invisible.

Moss’s character will act as a role model to Reid’s motherless Sydney, but a rift is created between the pair when strange occurrences around the house cause the young girl to distrust Cecilia.

No release date for the Leigh Whannell film has been announced as yet.
