A sequel to ’80s fantasy musical film Labyrinth looks to be getting underway.
In 2017, it was revealed that the film, which stars the late David Bowie, will get a second instalment from The Girl in the Spider’s Web director, Fede Alvarez.
There’s been no further news about the movie– until now.
Alvarez revealed in an interview with Fandango yesterday (October 25) that talks have been revived and a script exists.
“I was actually having lunch yesterday with Lisa Henson [film producer] and we reconnected with that project,” Alvarez told the website
Alvarez also spoke about his thoughts on the project actually coming to fruition: “You never know, and really right now, I’m just finishing with this film so I’m not even thinking about what I’m going to do next. But all I can tell you is that I had lunch with her yesterday and it was great.”
The original Labyrinth, released in 1986, starred Bowie as Goblin King Jareth who steals a teenager’s (Jennifer Connelly) baby brother after she wishes him away. MORE
