Okay, well its one of them. They are taking the 80s version which is a perfect remake and are now remaking it again. That's just stupid all over, but hey, these are the same retards that are setting about systematically buttraping every possible form of potentional revenue and blindly heading the wrong way down a one way street.
There is one point of good news in this, even if the project is a very silly one in the eyes of most. The writer will be one of the guys behind the excellent, better than excellent, battlestar gallactica remake which is, in all fairness another example of a remake done right.
Thanks for the heads up on the forums
Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment are hooking up to bring a remake of John Carpenter's The Thing to the big screen, reports Variety.
The script for the new movie will be written by Battlestar Galactica executive producer-writer Ronald D. Moore. Moore is a veteran of sci-fi TV, having written and produced numerous episodes of recent Star Trek series and Roswell.
Original producer David Foster will executive produce the new movie. Strike partners Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will produce and the company will co-finance the picture.
Producers are actually calling the newly planned film "a companion piece" to Carpenter's 1982 movie that deals with a shape-shifting creature from outer space that terrorizes researchers at an Antarctic facility.
Carpenter's film was itself an indirect continuation of the 1951 Howard Haws pic The Thing from Another World. Both movies were inspired by the John W. Campbell, Jr. novella "Who Goes There?"
