The Thing prequel?

Anyone have more information or thoughts on the story Moore is doing a prequel to The Thing (John Carpenter version,) apparently focusing on the Norwegian camp? This sounds like such a bad idea that I'm wondering if it can be true. Not having Moore do it, since mindless Cold War paranoia is exactly his sort of thing, but the whole prequel thing. I mean, if there was one movie that could logically expect a sequel, it's The Thing. And improvements in action FX for makeup always can up the gore factor. And it would be easy to write continuity with the old series yet still set it in contemporary times. A tiny fragment of space alien, frozen by Antarctic cold, survives in stasis, slowly carried down to the shore, where a cruise ships waits---
