New release date for The Thing revealed
Universal confirms that it’s shunted the release of The Thing back to October next year…
It’s been a week or two now since Universal shunted The Thing out of its original April 2011 release s;pt, as it signed off on additional photography for the upcoming prequel to John Carpenter’s classic.
As such, director Matthijs van Heijningen is now expected to have the movie finished in the first couple of months of next year. Yet Universal has announced a release date that should give him plenty of extra time to shape the final movie, should he need it.
For The Thing has now been moved to an October 14th 2011 release date in the United States, where it will now open the week before Paranormal Activity 3.
No more further details of the film have been released, and we suspect, given that its release is nearly a year away, we’re going to have to wait that bit longer to see a trailer (unless you happened to be at New York Comic-Con the other month, when one was screened).
We’ll, of course, keep you posted.
