John Carpenter to direct Randy Queen's comic book series Darkchylde
Posted by: Nathan Swank
John Carpenter (HALLOWEEN, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK) is going to direct Randy Queen’s DARKCHYLDE. The acclaimed comic series was a breakout sensation specifically among an unusually large female fanbase. This is what Randy and Sarah Queen’s Darkchylde Entertainment and Carpenter’s Storm King Producitoins had to say followed by the teaser poster.
Today, it was revealed (on Halloween of all days), John Carpenter is on board to direct Darkchylde. The film is based on the comic by Randy Queen about an amiable southern teen cursed to become the creatures from her many recurring nightmares. Every time Ariel Chylde transforms, she sheds her skin and a new nightmare emerges from her Id to act out her deepest, darkest impulses.
John Carpenter says, “Randy Queen’s hijacked angel, Ariel Chylde, is the best young female character since Laurie Strode in Halloween. Bringing Ariel and her dark mysteries to life should be quite an adventure for us all.”
