Elisabeth Moss, the star of this year’s hit horror movie, The Invisible Man, has offered her thoughts on the potential future of the franchise.
In a recent interview with Bloody Disgusting, Moss admitted that the future of The Invisible Man rests on whether there is a demand for a sequel from the audience.
“Look, if people want it that’s kind of a big part of what we need in order to do it,” Moss said. “So put the word out there that you want it and then I’ll help!”
Although Moss has revealed what it would take for a sequel to enter production, writer/director Leigh Whannell and producer Jason Blum had opposite opinions regarding the franchise’s immediate future in an interview last month.
“Well, I’ll say this, I never — Jason knows this about me — I never think about sequels when I’m making a film because it’s so hard to make one good movie, so I feel like it’s an impossible task to start thinking about what it’s going to spin off into,” Whannell said. “And I have made movies that have spawned many sequels, writing the first Saw movie, and Insidious, so probably, to the viewer, it may seem like I’m thinking in terms of franchises, but I never am. Ever, ever, ever. And this is that. So, I don’t know, but I know that Jason wants to know where it’s going.”
Blum added, “Yes, I do, I ask Leigh every day, where this is going. Every day, and I never get a straight answer.”
While the possibility of turning The Invisible Man into a franchise is seemingly unlikely right now, following on from the critical and financial success of the movie, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a follow-up does enter production if Whannell comes up with a story worth telling.
