What!? The Labyrinth reboot is happening! Seriously?!

January 23rd, 2016 by Marc Comments


With the world still in shock after the death of David Bowie, this really feels like a bolt from the blue.

And we aren’t sure is it’s insulting to his memory or not. But we think it is. We’re confused.

Any way, details are sketchy at the minute but it seems that Jim Henson’s 1986 cult classic Labyrinth is getting a reboot.

The Jim Henson Co and Tristar have agreed to produce a new take on the movie, which will be written by Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman.

In the original movie Bowie starred as the Goblin King who kidnapped a baby and took it to a magical Labyrinth where the older sister, played by Jennifer Connelly, had to come and rescue him.

It’s not clear right now if the movie is a reboot or a sequel but either way… the Goblin King is coming back.

But it’s not going to be Bowie and we’re not sure we’re ok with that.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
