A 2011 Remake of The Thing [1982]?

Reactions to the news.

No?
THANK HEAVENS.
That was close. It's a prequel, not a remake. Still looks like it sucks though. If the trailer is any indicator then this movie is going to be filled with jump scares and rehashed scenarios of the original. Probably with some shiny CG effects for good shitty measure.

One thing I don't understand is why they didn't title it at least a little differently, that is, if they really wanted to make sure people knew this wasn't a remake.

By the way, reading the wiki article on this movie and I found this one passage illuminating, but not surprising in the least.
Yeah. They went looking for something to dredge up from the vault of quality. What a couple of clowns.
