1986 cult classic ‘Labyrinth‘ is officially getting a sequel – and ‘Doctor Strange‘ director Scott Derrickson is set to helm the trippy world of Henson puppets.
Portrayed by the Starman himself David Bowie and a young Jennifer Connelly, the original ‘Labyrinth‘ took viewers on a fever dream of a film. It follows 16-year old Sarah (Connelly) trying to solve her way through a maze to save her baby brother from goblins, lead by Jareth the Goblin King (Bowie).
The premise is enough to conjure puzzled looks, but the bizarre film has since cemented its name into being one of the most memorable rides of the 80s.
Meanwhile, Derrickson has had his fair share of bizarre films. Apart from ‘Doctor Strange‘, he’s also directed similar horrors ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose‘ and ‘Deliver Us From Evil’.
The original scriptwriters have also reiterated that the new sequel won’t serve as a modern reboot, but more of a follow-up on the classic tale.
Further details also haven’t been shared, such as a release date or if we’ll see a Sarah as an adult or if the goblins have a new target this time.
Either way, no one could ever replace Bowie
