He is best known for helping work on major horror films including Saw and The Invisible Man. The film will be a reboot of the 2011 film starring Seth Rogen & Jay Chou and the 1960s television program starring Bruce Lee. Longtime screenwriter David Koepp submitted a script earlier this year to the studio. Michael Helfant and Bradley Gallo acquired control of the motion picture franchise in 2020 before moving forward at Universal.
