Production Weekly posted the following on Twitter:
Universal’s prequel to John Carpenter’s classic thriller The Thing, is due to begin filming March and continue till June in Toronto.
This is one of those projects we’re not overly thrilled about. Although The Thing present a number of interesting ways to expand the story, a prequel seems the least interesting. In fact, a straight remake based on the original story “Who Goes There” would strike us as more interesting.
But, who knows, it might surprise us all.
