Adaptation of Darkchylde Comic Book Scores Horror Legend John Carpenter

When we posted the WETA test footage for a possible Darkchylde movie, it was exciting. Why? Because even in the midst of comic book adaptation mania, “Darkchylde” is one of the titles that really, truly lends itself to film. There’s a strong female lead with a nearly unlimited amount of monsters that she becomes and unleashes onto the world. It’s high concept with a dash of character development and a metric ton of effects make up.

Keep that last element in mind because horror icon John Carpenter has chosen the adaptation as his next project. Putting it simply, the man who directed The Thing is teaming with WETA to make a movie about a young girl who transforms into and battles demons.

It doesn’t get much better than that. [STYD]
