Development of the film began in the mids when producers David Foster and Lawrence Turman suggested an adaptation of the John W. Campbell novella Who Goes There? It had been loosely adapted once before in Howard Hawks 's and Christian Nyby 's film The Thing from Another Worldbut Foster and Turman wanted to develop a project that stuck more closely to the source material.
Screenwriters Hal Barwood and Matthew Robbins held the rights to make an adaptation, but passed on the opportunity to make a new film, so Universal obtained the rights from them. John Carpenter was first approached about the project in by co-producer and friend Stuart Cohen,  but Carpenter was mainly an independent film director, so Universal chose The Texas Chain Saw Massacre director Tobe Hooper as they already had him under contract. The producers were ultimately unhappy with Hooper and his writing partner Kim Henkel 's concept.
After several more failed pitches by different writers, and attempts to bring on other directors, such as John Landisthe project was Johnny Cymbal - Mr.
Bass Man / Refreshement Time on hold. Even so, the success of Ridley Scott 's science fiction horror film Alien helped revitalize the project, at which point Carpenter became loosely attached following his success with They Live In Fear - Dead Wretched - Singles & 82 Practice influential slasher film Halloween Carpenter was reluctant to join the project as he thought Hawks's adaptation would be difficult to surpass, although he considered the film's monster to be unnotable.
Cohen suggested that he read the original novella. Carpenter found the "creepiness" of the imitations conducted by the creature, and the questions it raised, interesting. After securing the writer and crew, the film was stalled again when Carpenter nearly quit, believing that a passion project of his, El Diablowas on the verge of being made by EMI Films.
The producers discussed various replacements including Walter HillSam Peckinpah and Michael Ritchiebut the development of El Diablo was not as imminent as Carpenter believed, and he remained with The Attenzione!!! (Flashrider Mix) - Flashrider - Attenzione!!!. Filming was scheduled to be completed within 98 days.
Associate producer Larry Franco was responsible for making the They Live In Fear - Dead Wretched - Singles & 82 Practice work for the film; he cut the filming schedule by a third, eliminated the exterior sets for on-site shooting, and removed Bennings's more extravagant death scene. Nolannovelist David Wiltseand Hooper and Henkel, whose draft was set at least partially underwater, and which Cohen described as a Moby-Dick -like story in which "The Captain" did battle with a large, non-shapeshifting creature.
He was wary of taking on writing duties, preferring to let someone else do it. Bill Lancaster initially met with Turman, Foster and Cohen inbut he was given the impression that they wanted to closely replicate The Thing from Another Worldand he did not want to remake the film. By this time he had read the original Who Goes There? Copper, and the use of blood tests to identify the Thing, which Carpenter cited as the reason he wanted to work on the film. He also made some significant changes to the story, such as reducing the number of characters from 37 to Lancaster said that 37 was excessive and would be difficult for audiences to follow, leaving little screen time for characterization.

Kurt Russell was involved in the production before being cast, helping Carpenter develop his ideas. Discussions with the studio involved using actors Christopher WalkenJeff Bridges They Live In Fear - Dead Wretched - Singles & 82 Practice , or Nick Noltewho were either unavailable or declined, and Sam Shepardwho showed interest but was never pursued.
Tom Atkins and Jack Thompson were strong early and late contenders for the role of MacReady, but the decision was made to go with Russell. Some passed on the idea of starring in a monster film, while Dennehy became the choice to play Copper.
Ernie Hudson was the front-runner and was almost cast until they met with Keith David. Masur and David discussed their characters in rehearsals and decided that they would not like each other. The intent with the character was to have him become infected early on off-screen, so that his status would be unknown to the audience, concealing his intentions.
