Things are looking good for the film version of Randy Queen’s 90s-era classic Darkchylde comic. It’s been a couple years since WETA entered the picture, Newsarama revealed some WETA test footage for the film this summer, and now a press release has John Carpenter signed on to direct.
Queen had this to say:
“I’m beyond thrilled that John Carpenter, one of our most important, and legendary genre directors, and the man responsible for such landmark films as The Thing, and Halloween has come on board with Weta Workshop to help bring the nightmarish tale of Ariel Chylde to the silver screen. As a horror fan, the thought of Carpenter and Weta together, beautiful dreamscapes, and multiple transformations, makes me incredibly excited.”
