Director-composer John Carpenter has revealed that he is in early talks with Blumhouse Productions about making a new version of his 1982 horror movie The Thing.

“I have? I don’t know about that. But we’ve talked about — I think he’s going to be working on The Thing, rebooting The Thing. I’m involved with that, maybe. Down the road,” Carpenter replied.

The Thing revolved around researchers who encounter a malevolent, shape-shifting alien that impersonates and attacks researchers in a frigid polar environment.

It was based on the 1938 novella Who Goes There by John W. Campbell Jr.

A prequel to Carpenter’s film, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton and directed by Matthijs van Heijningen, was released by Universal Pictures in 2011.
