Reboot Of David Bowie's Labyrinth In The Works From Guardians Of The Galaxy Co-Writer


According to The Hollywood Reporter, TriStar struck a deal with The Jim Henson Company to produce a reboot of the 1986 cult classic, Labyrinth, which was directed by Jim Henson, produced by George Lucas and starred David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly.

Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel co-writer, Nicole Perlman, is writing the script.

THR adds, "It is unclear if the new take is a reimagining of the story or a sequel, as it is being kept deep in the vault."

Jim Henson's daughter and Chief Executive Officer of The Jim Henson Company, Lisa Henson, will produce the Labyrinth reboot, which will be overseen by TriStar's Nicole Brown.
