“I would like to do a sequel to The Thing, or a continuation, something like that,” Carpenter told THR. “But I don’t know. See, there are a lot of things in this world I don’t know.” Don’t do it.
In the past, you’ve said you feel it is superior to Escape From New York. Still accurate?
"Sure, in some ways. Escape From New York had Donald Pleasence as the president of the United States, which to me was great. But Escape From L.A. has Peter Fonda and Kurt Russell surfing. Doesn’t get much better than that."
Rob Bottin wanted to do a sequel to the Thing for years and had some crazy ideas for it, he's long retired now so...
The scripts for the aborted Frank Darabont TV series are online and they're okay. The Dark Horse comics which carried on directly from the end of the film weren't bad but were kind of pointless. The art was great though.
No there isn't. Yeah Cameron has been rumoured to be working on a remaster of Abyss but the rumours have been around forever, plus it's known he's been busy on Avatar 2 recently.
Probably under huge pressure to 4K remaster Aliens too, but yeah there isn't even a HD version of The Abyss. It's a big job because there are so many special effects that for whatever reason he doesn't feel would stack up by today's standards.
There have been two separate releases of T2 on 4K disc. Both use the same DNRed 4K master as their base, which was either noise reduced because it was prepared for the 3D cinema release and 3D don't like grain, or it's how Cameron wants it to look now.
Either way, it looks bad and barely better (in some cases worse) than some of the old Blu-ray transfers.
I doubt we'll ever get a physical release of True Lies. There's a Spanish bootleg of the DVHS release on Blu-ray that's serviceable.

EMarkM: Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?

vicedestroyer: I guess, once the world does its best Waterworld impression, it will be survival of the fittest. Either the boy swims fast or becomes shark tucker.

zagibu: Sharks not only swim fast, they also swim silent. Their scales are called dermal denticles, and they create local swirls around them which reduce the shark's overall drag in water.

zagibu: So even if a boy could swim as fast as a shark, he wouldn't hear them coming.
