Plot Details for ‘The Thing’

"In the screenplay by Ronald D. Moore, the prequel takes place from the Norwegian camps point of view. An American scientific expedition to the frozen wastes of the Antarctic is interrupted by a group of seemingly mad Norwegians pursuing and shooting a dog. The helicopter pursuing the dog crashes leaving no explanation for the chase. During the night, the dog mutates and attacks other dogs in the cage and members of the team that investigate. The team soon realize that an alien life-form with the ability to take over bodies is on the loose and they don’t know who may already have been taken over."

The original movie, which starred Kurt Russell, revolves around a group of scientists in the Antarctic who are confronted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of the people that it kills. It also started with a dog being infected!

Doesn’t this plot sound more like a just another remake?
