Prequel to The Thing Films in March

Excited about the prequel to John Carpenter horror film The Thing? (Let's not forget Carpenter's film was itself a remake of Howard Hawks' movie of the same name from 1951.) Well, if you are you'll be pleased to find that it's set to film in March.

Horror Squad has the scoop:

Production Weekly has shared the following via their Twitter feed: "Universal's prequel to John Carpenter's classic thriller The Thing, is due to begin filming March and continue till June in Toronto."

Anyone who's seen Carpenter's film has reason to be excited, assuming this prequel can even come close to living up to his movie. Easily one of the best horror sci-fi film of the '80s, The Thing is one of those movies that not only stands up to the test of time, but to repeated viewings as well.

It's understandable that some fans of the Carpenter flick would be a little hesitant to get behind the prequel, if only out of confusion as to how it could really add anything to the story. This was a film that stands alone and doesn't really merit a sequel or a prequel. That said, it has such a loyal fanbase that many people will go to see this film just to see how it holds up.

So what are your thoughts? Are you excited or disappointed that this prequel is actually going to happen? March isn't far away, so it sounds like we could be seeing this film by the end of this year or early 2011.
