The Thing Prequel: Are These ‘Them Crazy Swedes’?
If The Thing prequel is set to showcase anything at all, it has to be the alien-induced slaughter at the Norwegian camp site. Thus far, though, only Americans have been announced in terms of casting. Is it time that we finally get the names of the aforementioned Crazy Swedes?
According to their sources Eric Christian Olsen (Not Another Teen Movie, “Community”), Dennis Storhøi (The 13th Warrior), Trond Espen Seim (The Frost), Jørgen Langhelle (Svik), Stig Henrik Hoff, Jan Gunnar Røise, Kristofer Hivju (Manhunt), and Jo Adrian have joined the already announced Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton.
While we await official confirmation, at least we know that the filmmakers are heading in the right direction. Look for more on the Matthijs van Heijningen’s prequel really soon as shooting is scheduled to commence up in British Columbia and Toronto shortly.
