As The Invisible Man continues to be a big success for Universal, the studio is looking to keep the momentum with its monster movies, while still not setting up the sort of interconnected movie universe it attempted with 2017's The Mummy. James Wan, a reliable filmmaker on the horror front, is now on board to produce a movie for the studio.

Details for the new film are being kept quiet, though it's being described as in the tone of Disturbia blended with the studio's classic creature features. Robbie Thompson's script sees a group of teens discover that a neighbour is building a monster in his basement. And, of course, something goes wrong...

Wan won't direct this one, as he's already busy with several projects. His latest, Malignant (which recently added Mckenna Grace to its cast), is due out on 14 August, and he'll then turn his attention back to the Aquaman sequel.
