One of the greatest science fiction films ever, The Thing, is about to be remade.
However, unlike the 1951 classic -- in which an alien vegetable in human form feeds little Things with blood drained from soldiers and scientists in a North Pole research station -- the remake will draw heavily from the 1982 version in which the alien can assume the shape of any living creature.
Both films are based on the 1938 John W. Campbell Jr. short story Who Goes There?

- Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Tell-All Netflix Series Delayed To 2023 After Attacks On ‘The Crown’

The new flick is being directed by Matthijs Van Heijningen (Dawn of the Dead) and written by Ron Moore (Battlestar Galactica).
