Screenwriter Nicole Perlman sets record straight about Labyrinth reboot/sequel


Yesterday we mentioned that there is a Labyrinth reboot in the works, which is being written by Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman. Perlman took to Twitter over the weekend to assure fans that the film is not a remake, while suggesting the project is a continuation of the story that’s been in the works for some time.

There you have it. If this is a Labyrinth sequel, it’ll be interesting to see if it revisits Jennifer Connelly’s character as an adult; ditto how they’ll discuss Jareth the goblin king (David Bowie).

So far my friend Christina Nicholls has the best suggestion for who should play the new goblin royal: Tilda Swinton.

Any other suggestions? Add them to the comments.
