Los Angeles, May 27 (IANS): "Doctor Strange" director Scott Derrickson will be helming the sequel to the 1980s musical fantasy "Labyrinth", which starred music icon David Bowie and actress Jennifer Connelly.

Maggie Levin, who wrote and directed "Into The Dark: My Valentine", is on board to pen the script for the sequel for TriStar Pictures, reports variety.com.

The 1986 original film remains to be a cult status even after over three decades.

It was directed by the late Jim Henson, and most of the film's significant characters were played by puppets produced by Henson's Creature Shop.
