After taking seven years off from directing feature films, there is no doubt in my mind that Carpenter's return is partially in response to the sub-par remake of Halloween, a need to show these young kids how to make convincing horror. shocktillyoudrop has made it known that the casting of L.A. Gothic is currently underway with hopes of shooting in March.
Written by busy bees Jim Agnew and Sean Keller (their Damned is currently in production and Giallo just scored horror legend Argento to direct), L.A. Gothic tells "five interwoven stories of high-octane horror centering on a vengeful ex-priest's efforts to protect his teenage daughter from the supernatural evils of L.A.s dark side".I would love to see Kurt Russell reteam with John Carpenter for this movie. Russell as a vengeful ex-priest? Hell yes. He can wear his old vestments while wearing dark shades, making glib, antihero comments about whatever form terrible evil takes in the movie. In any event, welcome back, John Carpenter, make us afraid.
