Fede Alvarez is one of horror’s Golden Boys; the indie director made a huge splash helming Don’t Breathe in 2016 and was also lauded for his surprisingly excellent Evil Dead reboot from 2013. We’re getting word that Alvarez’s next project will be another remake, one that may have special resonance for horror fans who came of age in the 1980s.
TriStar has tapped Fede Alvarez, best known for directing the horror hit “Don’t Breathe” for Screen Gems, for its new retelling of the 1986 Jim Henson classic “Labyrinth.”
