The Thing Prequel - Producer Offers some AnswersDeth_Banger
Recently we reported that Matthijs van Hijningen Jr's The Thing prequel had been removed from Universals release slate for 2011 and there was no explanation as to why. Well thanks to Hitfix, the producer of the prequel Marc Abraham told them that it has been removed due to additional photography and that they have a cut of the movie, in which they will use this time to enhance existing sequences and to help make the story crystal clear. Also to add punctuation marks to the film's feeling of dread.
If this is the real reason, then I'm glad they are taking the time to make this prequel as good as it can be and at least not rushing to get it released. Here's hoping we get a prequel worthy of Carpenter's masterpiece.
