‘The Thing’ Prequel Gains Some Muscle

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, best known to me as the badass Simon Adebisi in HBO’s “OZ” and Mr. Eko in “Lost”, has landed the role of “Derek Jameson” in Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment’s The Thing prequel that’s now underway in Toronto, Canada. Akinnuoye-Agbaje also starred in The Mummy Returns and G.I. Joe. Being directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., he’ll star alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton. The prequel to John Carpenter’s 1981 remake takes us to a remote Antarctica outpost where an alien spaceship is discovered far beneath the ice. When a group of ambitious scientists decide to thaw out one of the creatures inside, they’re in for the terrifying fight of their lives.
