Ok, so we ran the story last week that a new Labyrinth movie is in the works, remember?
We didn’t know if it was set to be a sequel or a reboot as few details were revealed. We did know that Jim Henson company is involved and Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman was on scripting duties.
Well now Perlman has taken to Twitter to assure fans that it’s not a reboot and she’s horrified that people think they’re capitalising on the death of original movie star David Bowie: “Guys, please don’t fall for all the clickbait, no one is remaking Labyrinth. That movie is perfect as is.
“I would never seek to profit from Bowie’s death.”
While Perlman calls the articles clickbait, that’s a little unfair because the movie IS happening. So we have to assume now that it will be a sequel (as we reported it might be).
Will it focus on Toby, the child kidnapped by Bowie’s Goblin King, perhaps? Will Jennifer Connelly return? Will they recast Bowie’s Goblin King or focus elsewhere? Who knows, but the speculation has begun…
