John Carpenter Working On A Gothic Western, Would Like To Cast Amy Adams

John Carpenter was a guest at  July’s Fright Night Film Festival in Louisville, Kentucky where he took part in a Q&A with Fangoria magazine. Finally, they uploaded their (poorly shot) videos of this Q&A to their site, and in the process brought some of Carpenter’s most interesting comments to a bigger audience.

The big news, I suppose, came when Carpenter revealed a project he was working on right now.

I got into this business to make Westerns, and I got tyepcast as a horror director after Halloween. My dream was to become, to have a career in directing movies so I went wherever they wanted me to go… I’m right now working on a little gothic Western, we’ll see if we can get it set up. It’s hard to sell Westerns these days, meaning it’s hard to raise money because they’re not real commercial.

[A horror Western] doesn’t really work… they tried it in the old days, they tried Jesse James Meets Frankenstein and Billy the Kid Meets Dracula… a Western should be a Western.

As to who might star in this gothic-but-not-horrific Western, well, obviously it’s too early to tell if it will ever actually need stars but Carpenter was also asked about his favourite current actors.

Amy Adams… she’s an unbelievable actress, what a talent. Yeah, I’d love to work with her.

Yeah, I like that. Amy Adams in a gothic Western with those incredible John Carpenter widescreen competitions and his amazing way with staging. Sounds like a dream.

Probably a dream that won’t come true, but still, a nice one anyway.
