If you’re like me, then you really have LOVE John Carpenter‘s "The Thing," which means you might be annoyed to learn that a new remake is officially underway. But you shouldn’t be annoyed, and here’s why: The "Thing" we all love so much … is a remake in its own right.

From Variety: "Strike Entertainment and Universal Pictures will remake John Carpenter’s frightener "The Thing." Script will be written by "Battlestar Galactica" exec producer Ronald D. Moore. The 1982 original dealt with a shape-shifting creature from outer space that terrorizes researchers at an Antarctic facility.

Carpenter’s film continued the storyline of the Howard Hawks-directed "The Thing From Another World." That 1951 film starred James Arness as an alien monster that wiped out workers at an Army radar station."
