Nicole Perlman on Labyrinth Reboot Reports: “Don’t Fall For All The Clickbait”


“No one is remaking “Labyrinth.” That movie is perfect as it is.”

For a few days, rumors have been circulating that a reboot of 1986 classic Labyrinth was in the works. But now, screenwriter Nicole Perlman has taken to Twitter to clear up the confusion, warning people not to “fall for all the clickbait.” Perlman appears to indicate that the film will be a “continuation,” and stresses that it will not be a remake.

“Guys, please don’t fall for all the clickbait,” Perlman wrote on Twitter. “No one is remaking “Labyrinth.” That movie is perfect as it is.”

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

David Bowie, the original Goblin King, passed away on January 10, following an 18-month battle with cancer.
