News of a Sony reboot of 80s classic Labyrinth just two weeks after star David Bowie's death has angered fans.

Jim Henson directed the 1986 fantasy film which starred David Bowie and was a flop at the time of its release only to gain cult status in recent years.

The original movie was written by Monty Python's Terry Jones and produced by Star Wars creator George Lucas.

Sony Tristar will be behind the new movie, which is expected to be a reboot but which may alternatively be a sequel, and the script will be written by Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman. 

Fans took to Twitter to express their concern over Sony potentially "butchering" a classic.
