Great, with Moore on this, we'll end up being confronted by the innate humanity of the Thing and how we're no better than it and maybe we actually deserve to be wiped out by it. The film will be alternately super awesome and hugely depressing. And gritty. And dark.
And the Norwegians will be Swedes and one of the Swedes will be a woman, cause Moore likes to change shit up.
No sequel unless Carpenter and Russell are in it.
And JC's The Thing
is NOT a remake of that bullshit '50s flick. They're both independent adaptations of the original short story "Who Goes There?"
