The Thing Movie Being Remade by Sci Fi Channel!
Sci Fi executive VP of program development Mark Stern has said that Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan is writing the adaptation of "Andromeda," based on Michael Crichton's novel, and David Johnson is working on the script of "The Thing," based on the short story "Who Goes There" by John W. Campbell Jr.
Darabont said Johnson should complete his adaptation by Christmas and shooting could get under way next year for an airdate on Sci Fi of either December 2005 or early spring 2006.
This is absolutely HUGE news for those of us who are 'The Thing' fans. I've loved John Carpenters version for such a long time and always thought a remake would be a great idea. Lets just wait and see (and hope) if the movie is done right!
