John Carpenter Will Direct ‘Darkchylde’

Monday, November 1 by

While his movies are being remade left and right (except for Vampires), John Carpenter is only looking forward. The horror great has signed on to direct an adaptation of the comic book Darkchylde. The story follows a girl named Ariel Chylde who often transforms into the monsters of her nightmares.

The film has been in the works for some time and now is gaining traction. WETA created a test video to present how a Darkchylde film should look and feel. It’s a pretty cool concept and with Carpenter at the helm, there’s room to really push the special effects envelope. Could be awesome. Or it could turn out like Vampires. (/Film)
