The Thing Prequel Set To Shoot

Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen, Jr with a screenplay by Battlestar Galactica’s executive reimaginer Ronald D Moore and Eric Heisserer, the prequel apparently details the shape shifting alien’s attack on the Norwegian base, the destroyed remains of which we saw in the Carpenter version.

However, Shock Till You Drop points out that Universal has not confirmed if the film is intended for theatrical release, and it's just a likely it could be a straight-to-DVD affair.
