Untitled John Carpenter Film

In a recent interview with Collider, John Carpenter stated he’s interested in directing “a little horror film” or “a big adventure film.

Circumstance would have to be correct for me to do it again. I’d love to make a little horror film… that would be great. Or a big adventure film. It would be a project that I like that’s budgeted correctly. Nowadays they make these young directors do movies for $2 million when the movie is written for $10 million. So you have to squeeze it all in there and I don’t want to do that any more.
