Universal and Strike Resurrect "The Thing"

Thing, The picture
Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment are joining forces to develop a remake of John Carpenter's 1982 horror flick "The Thing."


The outer-space creature finally makes its return after more than two decades. Yes, Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment are set to work hand in hand to develop "The Thing", a horror film remake of John Carpenter's picture of the same title.

Intended to be more "a companion piece" to the Carpenter film than a note-for-note remake, the project has already had "Battlestar Galactica" writer Ronald D. Moore onboard to pen the script. Meanwhile Marc Abraham and Eric Newman will both serve as producers with original film producer David Foster executive producing.

The original version, released in 1982, actually was a continuation to the Howard Hawks-directed "The Thing from Another World." It depicted the terror spread by the shape-shifting creature toward a team who is sent to an Army radar station in Antarctica.
