Labyrinth Reboot Planned at Tri-Star

By ComingSoon

A Labyrinth reboot is on the way from Tri-Star Pictures, says a story today at The Hollywood Reporter. It is uncertain whether or not the new Labyrinth will serve as a sequel to or a remake of Jim Henson’s 1982 fantasy classic, starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie. The trade notes that Guardians of the Galaxy cowriter Nicole Perlman has been brought aboard to supply the screenplay.

Scripted by Terry Jones from a story by Dennis Lee, the original Labyrinth was the final project from Henson. Connelly plays a young woman, Sarah, who accidentally offers up her baby brother to the Goblin King, Jareth (Bowie). To rescue the child, Sarah must navigate a fantastical world of creatures and magic until she can ultimately face off against Jareth himself.

News of the Labyrinth reboot comes, unfortunately, in the wake of the tragic news surrounding David Bowie’s passing earlier this month.

Since working on Guardians of the Galaxy, Perlman has returned to Marvel Studios to work on the screenplay for 2019’s Captain Marvel.

The Henson Company‘s Lisa Henson is attached to produce the Labyrinth reboot. Nicole Brown will oversee for Tri-Star.

Back in 2013, it was reported that Walt Disney Pictures was developing their own film titled Labyrinth. Although that project is not connected to the Henson film, it is said to follow a similar storyline with the central protagonist being a princess who has to traverse a dangerous maze in order to save her father. The current status of Disney’s Labyrinth project is unknown.

Yay! A new Henson "weird puppet" movie! We haven't gotten one since Mirrormask and that barely had any puppets in it. I hope it's a sequel.

You might want to check out YamaSong: March of the Hollow

Its being produced (and I think directed by) the Froud children and seems to be very much in the vein of Labyrinth and Dark Crystal. I'm following them on Facebook and what footage they've shown so far is intriquing.
