Ever wondered why that creepy dog was getting chased by helicopters and Norwegians in The Thing? Well, you're about to find out. Even if you didn't want to know. Matthijs Van Heijningen has been confirmed by the trades (even though Bloody Disgusting had most of the scoop earlier) as the director of this prequel. This movie may actually feature the brother of R.J. (Kurt Russell) as the title character. Ronald D. Moore is the mastermind behind this whole prequel, so it may have a shot at awesomeness.
