Director Fede Alvarez and screenwriter Jay Basu are working on a new movie set in the world of Jim Henson and George Lucas's 1986 film Labyrinth, reports Deadline. TriStar Pictures is developing the film, which is described as a "spin-off" and not a direct sequel or remake.
“Labyrinth is one of the seminal movies from my childhood that made me fall in love with filmmaking," said Alvarez. "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.”
Back in January 2016, Guardians of the Galaxy screenwriter Nicole Perlman said she had been hired to write a sequel to Labyrinth but nothing more has been said about that attempt.
Alvarez and Basu are currently working on The Girl In The Spider's Web, the sequel to the American film adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
