Not strictly a local story, but certainly one that will bring a smile to many faces, a long anticipated sequel to to Jim Henson’s Labyrinth has been confirmed.
Henson’s daughter Lisa will produce, while Henson’s son Brian – who voiced and operated the giant Hoggle puppet in the original film – will executive produce, according to Deadline.
Derrickson is best known for directing 2016 Marvel film Doctor Strange, however earlier this year he walked away from the sequel due to “creative differences”.
The 53-year-old has also directed several other films, including horrors The Exorcism Of Emily Rose, Sinister and Deliver Us From Evil.
