    Came across this today;

    Reports are that after the success of the video game, Universal wants a sequel to Carpenter's gore-sterpiece, "The Thing." The article seems to suggest that he has written it already.

    However I was quick to e-mail his assistant today and she said he's never mentioned any of this to her.

    So if it's a rumor....it's a tasty one! I've been longing for a follow-up for some time now.

    Interesting since Carpenter didn't write "The Thing" (either his version or the original 1950s version).

    Interesting. Anything that will help us get a new anamorphic version of the original faster.

    I don't know about Carpenter, but when Frank Darabont was going to produce it as a TV movie, a writer I know named Dave Johnson did a script. That was a few years ago, and I haven't heard anything about it since.
