The Thing Prequel

Anyone heard about this?


http://www.moviehole.net/200815492-w...hing-come-from


Quote:
Producer Marc Abraham tells Latino Review that he and John Carpenter are still developing a sequel to “The Thing” – only it’s not so much a sequel, as it is a prequel and the events of it will play out concurrently time-wise with the first film. Now that’s new – in every interview he’s given, Carpenter’s referred to the project as a “sequel”.

"This is more of a prequel than a sequel, there is your exclusive. Its going to be taking place in the same time frame”, says Abraham, who’d obviously know.

The site says they asked Abraham if we are going to find out the origins of the alien and it landing on earth and he said:

“These are the events leading up to the 1982 film.”

Seems we’ll find out what happened to the Norwegian team. Finally. And will CGI see the return of Kurt Russell’s character? Doubtful, but how cool would that be!?

I must admit I am curious about the origins of the thing.

CGI... not cool. Unless you belong in the playstation-generation.

The idea of a prequel sounds extremely cool and open to so much.....All I ask is have Carpenter direct and Bottin do the special effects again.....and no goddamn shitty CGI....I want old-school puppets, props, etc..............Larry

It'd be really cool if they get John Carpenter back.

The origin of The Thing was outer space, so they could set it on, say, Mars.

Carpenter won't ever made another truly good horror film, imo. And I'm not sure who could do a reasonable job on such a title - young guys are going to be full of jump scares and fast cutting... something that would have ruined the Carpenter version fo the film.

In other words - I know we all like to revisit scenes of great excitement, but this is probably a bad idea...

I am more interested in the "Latino Review".

Sounds like a gay porn mag!

I too agree that having Carpenter at the helm would be a bad move. I think he's just spent, done, all dried out of talent, and I think he knows this too. As for the fx, I'd want a combination of traditional and CGI. Yes, it would be ideal to use traditional fx whenever possible, but just think of all of the possibilities if they got a really good group of CG animators together. Possibilities are endless.
