Here’s some interesting news … decades later, a sequel to the 1986 film Labyrinth is actually on its way with Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez sitting at the helm. An interesting project for Alvarez for sure.
According to the site, TriStar has set Alvarez to direct and Jay Basu to write a film that will delve into the universe Jim Henson hatched in the Henson-directed cult classic. The duo will take on that hallowed project after Alvarez directs the script he wrote with Basu for The Girl in the Spider’s Web, the continuation of the Lisbeth Salander saga that Sony began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Alvarez, who also helmed for Sony the genre blockbuster Don’t Breathe, will do Labyrinth after he and Basu complete Spider’s Web. That film is casting and will begin production this fall.
