The 1986’s dark fantasy musical Labyrinth, which starred legendary musician David Bowie, is getting adapted for the stage. The movie will also return to theaters for a special three-day run on April 29, May 1, and May 2. This was revealed by Brian Henson, son of Jim Henson who directed the original movie.

“We are working on a theatrical adaptation of the original movie for the stage,” Henson said in an interview with Forbes adding that it won’t be “necessarily Broadway, it could be for London’s West End, but it will be a stage show, a big theatrical version.”

Henson also briefly discussed the rumors that there is a sequel to the Labyrinth in the works.

“I can say we are still excited about it but the process moves very slowly and very carefully,” he explained. “We’re still excited about the idea of a sequel, we are working on something but nothing that’s close enough to say it’s about to be in pre-production or anything like that.”

Labyrinth focused on a 15-year-old girl Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) who embarks on a dangerous journey through a creature-filled maze in order to save her younger brother from Jareth, the Goblin King (Bowie).

The movie ended up being a commercial failure and received mixed reviews from the critics. Still, it gained a cult following since then with the role of the Goblin King becoming one of David Bowie’s most notable movie works. Bowie also actively worked on the soundtrack for the movie, writing five original songs.

The first reports about the sequel for Labyrinth appeared in 2016 when Vanity Fair revealed that Nicole Perlman (Guardians of Galaxy) is writing a script for the project. Then in 2017, it was reported that Fede Álvarez (Evil Dead) is attached to direct the sequel with Jim Henson’s daughter Lisa Henson and David Bowie’s son Duncan Jones assuming the producer roles.
