I love John Carpenter! I guess the first of his movies that I seen were Big Trouble in Little China and Starman, which I’m sure was the same for many of you. From there I went on to Escape From New York, The Thing, They Live, Christine and of course, Halloween. Even “bad” Carpenter was great for me. I have a soft spot for Escape From L.A, and both Vampires and Ghosts of Mars are awesome. It’s been 10 years since he released The Ward (which is also pretty good) and I actually thought he’d retired, so it was exciting this week to read (even if it’s not exactly an eventful piece of news) that he’s ready to make a new movie. He says “I don’t have one scheduled, but I’m working on things.”
Speaking of John Carpenter, although somewhat indirectly, Jamie Lee Curtis has revealed that she would be up for another Halloween film. “If David Gordon Green called me up and said let’s do another Halloween, I would do another Halloween,” Curtis emphatically stated. “Because he did such a beautiful job creating this movie,” she added. While a sequel is not exactly necessary, the 2018 Halloween was pretty good, and I’d be happy to sit through another entry.
Bruce Campbell remains retired from the role of Ash, but confirms that there is more Evil Dead on the way. “They’re going to see different versions, they’re going to be seeing more ‘Evil Dead,’ too. We’re not done with the ‘Evil Dead’ saga, more stories to tell.” I’m a huge fan of Bruce, but I don’t NEED him in the role. As long as the original producers are on board to tell the new stories, I’m on board as a viewer.
Lastly, do you remember 2008’s Midnight Meat Train? Well, after writing recent scripts for Pet Semetary and The Prodigy, Jeff Buehler might just be turning his attention to another instalment on the train. “I have not had direct conversations about Midnight Meat Train, although I love that world. And I think we never really got a good dose of what the fathers were all about, the way it ends in the film with the train conductor explaining the world of the fathers doesn’t get all the way into the mythology in the story, with the fathers and the maker and the history of this society under New York City, and how important it is to keep the ecosystem of New York City healthy. The symbiotic relationship that these monsters have with the city itself.” Make it happen I say!
