In the latest move that makes fans scream “WHY!?!?” before Hulk punching whoever is closest to them; Tristar has made a deal with The Jim Henson Co. to produce a new version of Labyrinth, according to THR.
Originally unknown, it now appears that the film will be a sequel to the original film, not a remake. (Update via EW)
The original Labyrinth starred the late David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly. With the legendary Bowie having just recently passed, one has to wonder if this is too soon; if necessary at all.
What may be seen to some as a bright side to all this confusion is that they have tapped Nicole Perlman; co-writer of Guardians of the Galaxy to helm the script. She worked her way up in Marvel’s writing program and is also set to be the co-writer of Marvel’s first ever female led solo movie, Captain Marvel.
