The Thing - Ron Moore to write the prequel

First Showing have this brilliant piece of news.
In 1982, John Carpenter released The Thing, the second film to be spawned from John W. Campbell Jr.'s short story "Who Goes There." Universal has officially announced today that Ronald D. Moore, the mastermind behind such groundbreaking shows as "Carnivale" and "Battlestar Galactica," will pen the script for the prequel which focuses on a Norwegian camp overrun by shape-shifting aliens. The film has commercial director Matthijs Van Heijningen attached to direct.
