Default John Carpenter's The Ward

This was reported over the summer:

Carpenter Goes Gothic?
Though I guess it’s up to John Carpenter when we know more about what John Carpenter is doing next (the man is infamous for not talking about upcoming projects to pretty much anyone), AICN got a pretty cool scoop about a possible project that’s more than worth a mention.

Their scoop is about a film called L.A. Gothic, a title that sounds more than a little familiar to me for whatever reason, and supposedly it will mark John’s return to feature film directing. Now, the scooper writes in as an intern in an office overhearing a conversation, so God only knows how accurate it might be, but if it is true, maybe it will wash the taste of Ghosts of Mars out of our mouths.

LA Gothic is about a priest and his teenage daughter, reportedly, and will involve a lot of creatures including vampires, zombies and a possessed rock star. Tons of action and gore are what’s promised from the film so hell even if it’s not John Carpenter’s next, it still sounds like it will kick ass.

Though it does seem promising; in an interview he did with Suicide Girls with the late Daniel Epstein (R.I.P., brother), Gothic was one of a few films he was considering doing next. Keep your fingers crossed, folks!

Now this:

EXCL: Carpenter's L.A. Gothic Now Casting
Source: SockTillYouDrop.com January 17, 2008


Genre legend John Carpenter is returning to horror feature filmmaking after a seven year absence. Casting is now underway for L.A. Gothic with an aim to begin shooting sometime in March. Josh Kesselman and Danny Sherman of Principal Entertainment are producing.

Writers Jim Agnew and Sean Keller signed a pre-strike deal with Principal to develop the script. Here's the logline: Five interwoven stories of high-octane horror centering on a vengeful ex-priest's efforts to protect his teenage daughter from the supernatural evils of L.A.'s dark side.

Well, if it doesn't suck as hard as Vampires, I'm in.

Though, I remember the last anthology movie he was involved with, Body Bags, was garbage.

Fantastic! I'm glad he decided to return to feature films. I don't care what it is, I'm there.

This isn't an anthology though. It sounds like it's in the vein of Pulp Fiction.

And Vampires is a blast jerkface.

Ghosts of Mars was pretty disappointing, but I like more of his movies than dislike so I'm looking forward to his return to the big screen.

VAMPIRES really does suck, though.
