Elisabeth Moss leaving 'The Handmaid's Tale' season 4 for 'The Invisible Man 2'

Elizabeth Moss may have to choose between The Invisible Man 2 and The Handmaid’s Tale season 4.

Elisabeth Moss is speculated to leave the production of The Handmaid’s Tale season 4. This is so that she can concentrate on the work needed for The Invisible Man 2.

It is said that the Emmy-winning actress wants to build a reputable profile in the movie industry. She feels she already made a huge impact on television and wants to experience crossover success on the big screen.

Moss first earned widespread recognition on television as Zoey Bartlet on The West Wing. She then played Peggy Olson on Mad Men, which provided her with several critical notices. She now stars and produces The Handmaid’s Tale, which gave her two Emmys in its debut season.

The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 pauses filming

The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 was still in the early phases of its principal photography when production was suspended. Now, producers have to bar filming because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moss was set to make her directorial debut on the fourth season, a report says. The plan was for her to helm the 39th episode of the Emmy-winning Hulu series.

The previous season ended with June (Moss) getting captured by a Gilead guard. This came after she successfully helped the transfer of more than a hundred children to Canada.

There are a lot of theories as to what will happen in the upcoming The Handmaid’s Tale season. One popular theory online is that Lydia (played by Ann Dowd) will betray Gilead. In the third season, Lydia notably started having an internal struggle about her role in the regime.

The Invisible Man 2 still a possibility

Talks of The Invisible Man 2 started circulating when the first movie became an overnight success early this year. The movie, which starred Elisabeth Moss, received praise for offering a fresh take on a classic source material.

The first Invisible Man movie earned US$126.1 million worldwide on a $7 million budget. Because of this, there are reports that the producers are mulling the creation of a sequel.

Right now, Universal Pictures is still concentrating on a female counterpart of the film called The Invisible Woman. It is said that this new movie will not be connected to The Invisible Man despite being in the same franchise. Elizabeth Banks will serve as the star, director, and producer of the film.

The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 will start streaming in Hulu later this year. On the other hand, Universal Pictures will soon announce updates on The Invisible Man 2.
