Elisabeth Moss is moving from under his eye to "The Invisible Man."

The Emmy-winning "Handmaid's Tale" star is in talks to star in a reboot of the classic monster movie from Blumhouse Productions and "Saw" creator Leigh Whannell.

Johnny Depp, originally tapped to play the title character, is no longer involved in the project.

"The Invisible Man" is the first venture in Universal's fresh strategy for rebooting its monster classics. The studio had previously planned a shared universe with Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, and others, but those plans were put on hold after the underwhelming response to Tom Cruise's "The Mummy" in 2017.

Now, Universal is taking a more individualized approach for each property. "The Invisible Man" will not be part of an interconnected universe.

H.G. Wells' classic novel has inspired numerous film and television adaptations, including the 1933 black-and-white movie starring Claude Rains.

Moss can next be seen in Jordan Peele's highly-anticipated horror film "Us" on March 22, and then in Season 3 of "The Handmaid's Tale" starting June 5.
