For years we’ve been hearing about sequels and/or remakes of John Carpenter’s horror/sci-fi classic The Thing being in various stages of conceptualization. But the one thing that always made sense to horror fans was a film that depicted just what happened to the Norwegian research team who were attacked first.
Finally someone’s seeing it our way, specifically producer Marc Abraham, who told Latino Review that a new idea is being developed to run in the time leading up to the 1982 film. Hopefully that means we’ll see the team who pulled The Thing out of the ice and thawed it out and just what kind of damage it caused before jumping in the body of a dog and infiltrating MacReady’s camp.
Hopefully we’ll be hearing more about this soon; it’s been a long freaking development time for anything Thing-related and this is the most exciting advance yet.
