According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton will star in The Thing with Matthijs Van Heijningen directing from a script written by Ronald D. Moore and Eric Heisserer.
Winstead will play a Ph.D. candidate who joins a Norwegian research team in Antarctica after it discovers an alien ship in the ice. When a trapped organism is freed and begins a series of attacks, she is forced to team with a blue-collar mercenary helicopter pilot (Edgerton) to stop the rampage.
The Thing begins filming in Toronto on March 15th. Let’s just sit back and patiently await the inevitable announcement that this flick will be in 3D, shall we?
