David Bowie’s ‘Labyrinth’ To Get A Reboot
Labyrinth, the 1986 cult classic fantasy film starring David Bowie, will soon get a reboot.
TriStar Pictures has inked a deal with the Jim Henson Company to make that happen, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman is set to pen the script, while a member of Jim Henson‘s family from his production company will produce the project. (The original Labyrinth was the last film directed by the Muppets creator.)
Labyrinth is a surreal coming-of-age story also starring a young Jennifer Connelly, whose character Sarah wanders through a maze to rescue her lost infant brother from the Goblin King, Jareth, played by David.
The Hollywood Reporter says it is unclear whether this reboot will be a sequel or a re-imagining of the original tale; moreover, it would be interesting to see who would play the Goblin King after the Thin White Duke. Revisit the theatrical trailer below.
