Not even a month after Bowie’s death, Tristar (a Sony company) has signed on Guardians of the Galaxy‘s co-screenwriter Nicole Perlman to write the next Labyrinth movie.
The initial story reported that the movie was going to be a reboot based upon the classic 1986 Jim Henson movie about a girl going up against the Goblin King (David Bowie) to rescue her little brother. The decision tree so far is on the right path with hiring a fantasy writer like Nicole Perlman. Guardians was a fun film, as the Labyrinth should also be, but most fans may consider this announcement to come a little too close to Bowie’s passing.
To clear up rumors, Nicole Perlman has stated on Twitter that this would not be a reboot.
Not “rebooting” anything, guys.

The next couple months will be interesting as the story develops on the production of the Labyrinth. Is it a sequel? Is it a spin-off? Only Nicole Perlman and the head honchos at Tristar know.
