The latest from ‘THE THING’ remake. Ronald D. Moore’s on-again, off-again involvement with the movie is confirmed. He wrote an earlier draft of the script being used.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton will star in “The Thing,” Universal’s latest take on the shape-shifting alien who terrorizes a group of people in a remote facility.

Matthijs Van Heijningen is directing the latest movie, which was written by Ronald D. Moore and Eric Heisserer. Strike Entertainment’s Marc Abraham and Eric Newman are producing.

Winstead will play a Ph.D. candidate who joins a Norwegian research team in Antarctica after it discovers an alien ship in the ice. When a trapped organism is freed and begins a series of attacks, she is forced to team with a blue-collar mercenary helicopter pilot (Edgerton) to stop the rampage.
