I watched The Mummy and it's remarkable how they took a plot that was about 3/4 of a movie and then slapped half of a different film into the middle of it and still somehow only came out with less than a single complete work

I've never heard of this thing, just clicked on the thread in the expectation that it was about laughing at the universally dark universe we all live in and got to say I'm pretty disappointed

I was hoping for a debunking of dark matter a la string theory

Johnny Depp was the actor originally expected to play the Invisible Man

and now he’s the actor we all wish would disappear

Let's all bow our heads in honor of Camaraderie's thirst for humorous anomie.

Pretty sure Johnny Depp is already playing the Invisible Man in most movies. He's usually just walking around in the background and stuff, but you kind of have to squint.

I'm trying to think of a body of water that is hipper and fresher than the Black Lagoon.

The Creature from the Gowanus Canal? He's coming for your microbrews...and a hipster hottie in a vintage bathing suit?

In the meantime, the Invisble Man remake may have solved its Depp problem: https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2467738/the-invisible-man-reboot-may-have-found-its-first-new-star

I hope they cast her as the titular star and still bafflingly go with The Invisible Man as the title.

it's aliiiiiiiiive!

Elisabeth Moss, who was in early talks for Universal-Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man last month, is officially on board with the latest rendition of the classic monster character.

The project reps a re-team for Moss with producer Jason Blum after the recent $220M-global grossing success of Jordan Peele’s Us. Invisible Man will shoot in Australia. The opening weekend for Us became the highest-grossing ever for an original horror title.

And prompted by the wild success of an original horror title, we've opted to produce the 415th film adaptation of a 150 year old horror property.
