Scott Derrickson to Direct 'Labyrinth' Sequel

Scott Derrickson to Direct ‘Labyrinth’ Sequel. After separating from ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ as director, it seems Scott Derrickson has found a new project. The famed horror director is set to work on a sequel to Jim Henson’s Labyrinth.

The production team for the sequel includes Derrickson as director, Maggie Levin will be penning the script, and Lisa Henson will be producing the film with Brian Henson acting as executive producer. It is currently unknown what premise the film will follow but the production team has been clear that it will not be a remake or reboot, and instead will be a distinct sequel to Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. The sequel will be filmed by TriStar Productions for The Jim Henson Company.

Not familiar with the cult classic? Check out this synopsis of the 1986 film:

“Frustrated with babysitting on yet another weekend night, Sarah, a teenager with an active imagination, summons the Goblins to take her baby halfbrother away. When little Toby actually disappears, Sarah must follow him into a fantastical world to rescue him from the Goblin King, Jareth. Guarding his castle is the labyrinth itself, a twisted maze of deception, populated with outrageous characters and unknown dangers. To get through it in time to save Toby, Sarah befriends the Goblins, in hopes that their loyalty isn’t just another illusion in a place where nothing is as it seems.”
