Will They Continue Without Jareth?
Things have been pretty quiet since the Labyrinth sequel was announced. UNTIL TODAY!!!!!
Deadline has recently reported that the sequel has found a new director and screenwriter with Fede Alvarez (Don’t Breathe) and Jay Basu (Metal Gear Solid).
TriStar Pictures and Jim Henson Co. have also made it clear that this will not be a remake or a reboot, but instead be a story set in the Labyrinth universe. Alvarez also knows the burden he carries by stating “’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’.”
With these developments, what are fans to expect? Will it be set in a darker tone? Will any of the original characters return? Will there even be a Jareth? Hopefully all of these will be answered soon. But in the meantime, In case you need us…
