Over the weekend, media outlets reported that Labyrinth (1986) - featuring David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King and Jennifer Connelly as Sarah Williams - would be getting a reboot.
Confused about whether "reboot" meant remake or a sequel, bewildered fans awaited more news while expressing outrage over the poorly timed announcement given Bowie's recent passing.
However, screenwriter Nicole Perlman (known for Guardians of the Galaxy) whose name was attached to the project by news outlets, claims she has "no interest" in remaking the cult movie. Taking to Twitter, she posted: "Guys, please don't fall for all the clickbait. No one is remaking Labyrinth. That movie is perfect as it is."
She told Guardian Australia: "All I can say is that the timing for the story was awful; it felt like a punch in the gut... Bowie's music helped me through some of the hardest times in my life. I respect him as a musician, an actor, an icon and, most importantly, a human being. It would have been a dream come true, to write something for him."
Entertainment Weekly now claims the new film will be a sequel and not a reboot... whatever that means.
