A New Thing Is Coming

Matthijs van Heijningen will direct a prequel to John Carpenter’s 1982 horror-thriller The Thing.

The studio has set “Battlestar Galactica” executive producer Ron Moore to write the script.

The new project borrows heavily from the John W. Campbell Jr. short story “Who Goes There,” the basis of the Carpenter film and 1951 Howard Hawks original The Thing From Another World.

It is set in a Norwegian camp and chronicles how the alien was first discovered and overcame the inhabitants of that camp.
