Universal Pictures has decided when they will be unleashing their latest creature feature. Box Office Mojo is reporting that Universal will release The Thing on April 29, 2011.

Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. is directing from a script by Eric Heisserer and Ronald D. Moore. It was confirmed back in March that the film will be a prequel to John Carpenter's original 1982 film The Thing.
