Over 30 years after the original charmed audiences worldwide, bringing David Bowie and the Goblin King, the incredible creature work of Jim Henson and his team (including Neal Scanlan) and executive producer George Lucas to the silver screen, Labyrinth will see a sequel helmed by Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson.

Scott Derrickson, who passed on reprising as director on Dr. Strange 2 over creative differences, has found a new fantasy franchise to take on. He has been set by TriStar Pictures to direct the sequel to Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. Maggie Levin, who wrote and directed Into the Dark, and My Valentine for Hulu, will write the script.

Lisa Henson of The Jim Henson Company is producing. Brian Henson is executive producing. Derrickson is executive producing with his frequent collaborator C. Robert Cargill. Blanca Lista, SVP of feature film production for Henson, is shepherding the project for The Jim Henson Company.

No Lucasfilm involvement this time out, but great to see a sequel finally arriving for one of the great fantasy films of the 80’s.
