It's been months since we've heard anything about Universal's planned prequel to John Carpenter's cult classic film The Thing--so long, that I had started to wonder if it hadn't slipped off into development Hell.

That doesn't seem to be the case, as Production Weekly has shared the following via their Twitter feed:

"Universal's prequel to John Carpenter's classic thriller The Thing, is due to begin filming March and continue till June in Toronto."

I'm conflicted when it comes to how I feel about this project. On one hand, it's good that they're not trying to remake Carpenter's film. I don't think anyone can really improve upon the original, so why bother?
