The opening chapter of The Thing saga has added another name to its ever growing list of people who will hopefully end up meat for the beast.
According to IMDB (and confirmed), Jonathan Walker (Land of the Dead, “Smallville”) has signed on to tackle everyone’s favorite imitating alien. He’ll star opposite the already announced Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Dennis Storhøi, Trond Espen Seim, Jørgen Langhelle, Eric Christian Olsen, Stig Henrik Hoff, Jan Gunnar Røise, Kristofer Hivju and Jo Adrian Haavind.
Universal’s prequel to the John Carpenter classic The Thing is now shooting up in Toronto, Canada under the direction of Matthijs Van Heijningen. Look for more soon.
A Ph.D. candidate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) 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 (Joel Edgerton) to stop the rampage.
