UPDATE ON JOHN CARPENTER’S DARKCHYLDE PROJECT

 

Hey Bastards.

 

Of all the things (no pun intended) John Carpenter has been attached to there has been one project that has always been on my radar from the jump. About a year ago, Carpenter was attached to “Darkchylde”, Randy Queen’s comicbook about a teenage girl cursed to transform into monsters from her nightmares. IFC sat down with Carpenter to grab an update on the project as well as a few other superhero films he was attached to at one point.

 

 

On Darkchylde:

“We’re still developing it, and we’re still trying to get it set up,” he said. “We’re trying to raise money and find the right home for it, which is the biggest thing you have to do. You don’t want some place that doesn’t understand it.”

 

On previous superhero films:

“Well, I’ve thought about it before,” Carpenter told IFC. “Way back in the ’70s, I was approached to talk about the story I’d write for a Spider-Man movie. They also talked to me about Batman. I had to think about it, but that was way, way back when.”

“I’ve gone through various periods with superheroes,” he explained. “They work in the right hands, but they don’t work in other hands. It’s tricky. But any movie is tricky. It’s impossible to say, ‘This is what you do in any situation.’ So yes, I’ve thought about it and I’m not opposed to it.”

 

On THE THING prequel:

“I haven’t seen it yet,” admitted Carpenter. “I’ve heard different things from different people, though. . . But you know what? I wish them well. I’ll find out for myself when the Academy sends me all the movies at the end of the year to review.”

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
