Universal doing another take on 'The Thing'

Posted on

Universal is doing a reimagined take on The Thing, according to Variety, based on the same source material as John Carpenter’s 1982 horror film and the 1951 Howard Hawks original, The Thing From Another World. The story is based on a shape-shifting alien that overcomes the inhabitants of a remote camp. Battlestar Galactica exec producer Ron Moore will write the script and commercials director Matthijs Van Heijningen will direct.
