Screenwriter Clarifies Next 'Labyrinth' Is Not a Reboot

It turns out the next "Labyrinth" movie won't be a reboot after all.

Screenwriter Nicole Perlman ("Guardians of the Galaxy") took to Twitter to clear up rumors that the film would be a reboot, as The Hollywood Reporter previously indicated, and clarified that she begun work on the project roughly two years prior to star David Bowie's death:

Not "rebooting" anything, guys.

Henson Co & I started talking in late 2014, so the timing of these rumors is so upsetting. I would never seek to profit from Bowie's death.

Labyrinth is my favorite film from childhood, so I share your concerns that any continuation of the world be handled with love and respect.

Guys, please don't fall for all the clickbait. No one is remaking "Labyrinth." That movie is perfect as it is.

The original "Labyrinth" movie from 1986 was directed by Jim Henson, written by "Monty Python's" Terry Jones and executive produced by George Lucas. The film follows 15-year old Sara (Jennifer Connelly), who sets off to reach the center of a maze to save her younger brother from the Goblin King (Bowie).
