Labyrinth Reboot Planned at Tri-Star

A Labyrinth reboot is being planned, although it’s uncertain if it will manifest as a sequel or a remake

A Labyrinth reboot is on the way from Tri-Star Pictures, says a story today at The Hollywood Reporter. It is uncertain whether or not the new Labyrinth will serve as a sequel to or a remake of Jim Henson’s 1982 fantasy classic, starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie. The trade notes that Guardians of the Galaxy cowriter Nicole Perlman has been brought aboard to supply the screenplay.


Scripted by Terry Jones from a story by Dennis Lee, the original Labyrinth was the final project from Henson. Connelly plays a young woman, Sarah, who accidentally offers up her baby brother to the Goblin King, Jareth (Bowie). To rescue the child, Sarah must navigate a fantastical world of creatures and magic until she can ultimately face off against Jareth himself.

News of the Labyrinth reboot comes, unfortunately, in the wake of the tragic news surrounding David Bowie’s passing earlier this month.

Since working on Guardians of the Galaxy, Perlman has returned to Marvel Studios to work on the screenplay for 2019’s Captain Marvel.

The Henson Company‘s Lisa Henson is attached to produce the Labyrinth reboot. Nicole Brown will oversee for Tri-Star.

Back in 2013, it was reported that Walt Disney Pictures was developing their own film titled Labyrinth. Although that project is not connected to the Henson film, it is said to follow a similar storyline with the central protagonist being a princess who has to traverse a dangerous maze in order to save her father. The current status of Disney’s Labyrinth project is unknown.

dry.gif Personalmente non mi interessa nessuno dei due. Il film da solo č un classico (per non dire un cult), l'ho fatto vedere ai miei figli che come me se ne sono innamorati. Fare un remake? No, non reggerebbe i confronti. Un sequel? Manco per sogno, gli attori potrebbero non essere all'altezza e la storia era giā autoconclusiva.
Bocciate entrambe!! eheheh.gif

TriStar Rebirths World Of ‘Labyrinth:’ ‘Spider Web’s Fede Alvarez & Jay Basu Aboard

EXCLUSIVE: TriStar has set Fede Alvarez to direct a film that will delve into the universe Jim Henson hatched in the 1986 Jim Henson-directed cult classic Labyrinth. Alvarez and Jay Basu will co-write the story, with the latter penning the script. The duo will take on that hallowed project after Alvarez directs the script he wrote with Basu for The Girl in the Spider’s Web, the continuation of the Lisbeth Salander saga that Sony began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Alvarez, who helmed for Sony the genre blockbuster Don’t Breathe, will do Labyrinth after he and Basu complete Spider’s Web. That film is casting and will begin production this fall.

Insiders stress that what they will do with Labyrinth after The Girl in the Spider’s Web is create a new story within the universe created in the original movie and that it is not a remake; indeed it sounds more like a spinoff than a sequel. The original was the last film Muppets creator Jim Henson directed before he died tragically in 1990 at 53. Jennifer Connelly played a teen who wished away her baby brother. When the Goblin King Jareth (played by David Bowie) stole the infant away and took him to his castle to be turned into a goblin, the regretful teen has to find her way through his maze-like kingdom to rescue her sibling. The movie wasn’t a box office smash, but it was considered one of the strongest screen turns for Bowie and is beloved by a lot of filmmakers. Bowie’s character will not be part of this. The film is a co-production between TriStar Pictures and the Jim Henson Co. with Alvarez and Basu writing the script. Lisa Henson of the Henson Co. will produce, and Nicole Brown will oversee for TriStar.

The studio confirmed, and Alvarez told Deadline: “Labyrinth is one of the seminal movies from my childhood that made me fall in love with filmmaking. I couldn’t be more thrilled to expand on Jim Henson’s mesmerizing universe and take a new generation of moviegoers back into the Labyrinth.”

Basu is the Cambridge-educated British writer who moved from London to be a part of the Universal Monsters writers group, this after writing his first novel, The Stars Can Wait, and landing several scripts on the Brit List. He co-wrote Vertigo Films’ sequel Monsters: Dark Continent with Tom Green, and first worked with Alvarez on an adaptation of the EA game Dante’s Inferno for Universal. He has since done projects including U’s Talon for Chris Morgan, Metal Gear Solid for Sony and Jordan Vogt-Roberts and Red Queen for Universal and adapted the Joe Hill novel The Fireman for Fox.

Alvarez, who also directed the Evil Dead remake, is repped by WME and Stuart Manashil and Basu by UTA, 42’s Josh Varney, Kaplan/Perrone and attorney Peter Nichols.


Segnaliamo che sono in corso i casting e la produzione del film inizierā in autunno.
