Labyrinth Reboot/Sequel in the works!

12439079_10208535415242540_1624103455074391675_nAs the world mourns the loss of legendary singer and songwriter David Bowie, a film he is most affiliated with appears to be getting a reboot or a sequel.

On friday The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that TriStar has closed a deal with The Jim Henson Co. to produce a reboot of the Jim Henson film, and have hired Guardians of The Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman to write the script.

Following the story breaking the internet reacted pretty negatively to the news that they wanted to  reboot the cult classic. In reaction to the negatively Perlman revealed on twitter that the film is not a reboot after all.

So it appears the film will be a sequel to the original film rather than the original. In many ways this could be more difficult than if they simply remade the film unless they got input from Bowie before he passed away.
