Interview: The Thing stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Eric Christian Olsen!

In the upcoming prequel to John Carpenter’s THE THING, either Mary Elizabeth Winstead or Eric Christian Olsen is forced to get really tough with a deadly alien creature. Since the conversation began with Sigourney Weaver’s character, “Ripley,” it should be easy to figure out who rocks the hardest in this modern day monster movie.

When I sat with both of these fine actors, it was a pleasure to talk as they are clearly happy with the finished film. Since I was wearing my John Carpenter’s THE THING shirt, there was a little bit of animosity between Eric and me, but it was quickly resolved just because he’s such a cool fella. After all, he was a fan too.

One thing that is not terribly surprising is how lovely Ms. Winstead is. She is incredibly wonderful to chat with and a pretty damn talented actress on top of that. Both she and Mr. Olsen create a couple of interesting characters in this prequel that are easy to root for. Trust me when I say this, Mary can certainly offer a little bit of that daring that Linda Hamilton and Sigourney Weaver made work in the first place.

THE THING opens this Friday at a theatre near you.

In the prequel to the prequel of The Thing, called Thinger, there is a whole Antarctic team of female researchers in the 1930s, and every single one of them is butch and tough and they all battle the Thing with their bare hands. In the end, they high-five each other, and the Thing willingly crawls back to its ship to freeze (where it hopes to die). Also, there's tons of toilet humor.
Thinger is set for release in 2013, and its remake is due in 2015.
