I don't need to see what happened to the Norwegians. We all know they all died. So what fun is a move where we know they will all die. Plus shouldn't they speek Norwegian? I don't want to watch 2 hours of subtitles. But if they spoke english it wouldn't make sense. A prequel is a stupid idea. And I would even fear a sequel because even Carpenter would f it up. Anyone see Escape from LA? He has lost all of my respect. He has even said he would sell all rights to remake his films for the right amount of money. He doesn't own The Thing though. And to think this won't be all CGI is foolish. You know a majority of the effects will be CGI. It is cheaper than physical effects. And they won't hire Rob Bottin either. I hope this is just more talk and it doesn't happen.
