Bad news for The Thing fans (or good news for The Thing purists). The prequel to John Carpenter's 1982 flick just lost it's 2011 release slot. It was originally set for theatrical release on April 29, but Universal Pictures pulled it from its release slate. Hit the jump for more.
The Thing prequel chronicles the discovery of an alien craft in Antarctica. It directly precedes the original. First time director Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. helmed the pic. No new release date has been set.
