So if anyone was a fan of Dogma you know already that Chris Rock is the 13th Apostle, well now it seems like John Carpenter agrees that the story of The 13th Apostle needs to be told, only not the way I imagine Chris Rock and Kevin Smith thought of, instead it’s about a Pittsburgh detective who discovers that a series of horrible murders are the work of an Internet-based serial killers’ club. Find the news inside.
John Carpenter’s next feature will be THE 13TH APOSTLE for Inferno Distribution. It’s about a Pittsburgh detective who discovers that a series of horrible murders are the work of an Internet-based serial killers’ club, and joins forces with a stockbroker (?) to stop them. The script was written by Paul Margolis, who got it to the director through the latter’s “John Carpenter Presents” program, in which Carpenter mentors up-and-coming writers and directors. Carpenter’s wife/longtime producer Sandy King will produce APOSTLE along with Elizabeth Wang-Lee, Oliver Hengst and William J. Johnson. It’ll be Carpenter’s first feature in the four years since GHOSTS OF MARS, though he’s also currently working on an entry in Showtime/Anchor Bay’s MASTERS OF HORROR series.
