According to The Hollywood Reporter, Touchstone Pictures has embraced The Invisible, Spyglass Entertainment's supernatural thriller being directed by David Goyer. Spyglass is going full-steam ahead on Invisible, which originally was set up at DreamWorks in November, with shooting scheduled to start at the end of September in Vancouver.
The story is based on Swedish supernatural film Den Osynlige, penned by Mick Davis. A teenager is attacked and left for dead, then finds himself in limbo, invisible to the living and racing against time to find his body before he truly perishes. The only person who might be able to save him is his attacker, a troubled girl on the run from the law.
Davis’ script was written in English and translated into Swedish. Spyglass bought remake rights in 2002 and is sole financier on the pic.
Christine Roum did the latest revisions of the new English version. She’s currently writing "Dark Autumn" for Fox 2000. The screenplay was written by Mick Davis, with additional writing by Christine Roum.
