Fede Alvarez to Direct LABYRINTH Reboot

April 13, 2017

Don't Breathe

Evil Dead remake and Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez will direct TriStar Pictures’ upcoming reboot, Labyrinth. He’s currently working on the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo reboot The Girl in the Spider’s Web with Sony.

Nicole Perlman was initially brought to write the script, but Alvarez is bringing his Spider’s Web co-writer Jay Basu to help him with this one too. The reboot will not be a remake, but it will take place within the same universe as the original film, making it more possible of a spinoff than a sequel.

Alvarez said:

“LABYRINTH is one of the seminal movies from my childhood that made me fall in love with filmmaking. I couldn’t be more thrilled to expand on Jim Henson’s mesmerizing universe, and take a new generation of moviegoers back into the Labyrinth.”

Lisa Henson from The Henson Company will produce the reboot with Nicole Brown overseeing for TriStar.

The 1986 fantasy classic starred Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie. Written by Terry Jones from a story by Dennis Lee. Connelly plays a young woman, Sarah, who accidentally offers up her baby brother to the Goblin King, Jareth (Bowie). To rescue the child, Sarah must navigate a fantastical world of creatures and magic until she can ultimately face off against Jareth himself.
