  • David Bowie’s Labyrinth Remake in the Work’s with Marvel Universe Writer

David Bowie’s death broke many hearts as the musical legend passed away two weeks ago at the age of 69 from liver cancer. As he was commemorated, his entire body of work was remembered and reviewed.

One of his most iconic roles as the Goblin King Jareth in the movie Labyrinth has set the Henson Company to produce a remake of the movie, according to THR

Labyrinth featured David Bowie with a teenage Jennifer Connelly who wishes that her baby brother be taken away by the Goblin King. Her wish is granted and Jen’s character Sarah races against time to cross the mystic labyrinth in order to rescue her brother from the Goblin King.

Labyrinth was a children movie but featured a lot of themes and underlying features that scared many to watch the full movie. Directed by Jim Henson, written by Terry Jones and co-produced by George Lucas, the film failed terribly on the box office.

The critics however praise the puppeteer work in the movie as some of the best at the time and over the past years, the movie has developed into a cult hit.

Now the movie has been picked up by Sony’s branch Tristar. Henson Company will also be producing the movie. The nature of the movie is not yet clear. Will it be a remake or a sequel remains to be determined.

Marvel fans should be excited because the co-writer of Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America, Nicole Perlman will be writing for the remake as well.

Perlman is definitely established in the fantasy and genre spheres. She started in Marvel Studios’ writers program and made her mark with Guardians of the Galaxy. Last year she also served as a co-writer in Captain Marvel.

Fans of Labyrinth will definitely miss Bowie’s representation of the role but it may be a start to a new series of sequels and other movies.
