The Thing prequel to start shooting in March
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
A prequel to John Carpenter’s 1982 film THE THING is set to start shooting in March. Matthijs van Heijningen, Jr. is set to direct the film written by Ronald D. Moore and Eric Heisserer. The story will be about the previous origins and adventures of the alien organisms that were in the John Carpenter film. The shooting will take place in Toronto and will last until June. No cast has been announced yet
A Universal rep has confirmed that this film will be a theatrical release, although I can’t for the life of me understand why. I’m all for alien films but this has B-movie written all over it.
