Hollywood Reporter have revelead that the long-awaited next John Carpenter project (his first feature in four years!) will be The 13th Apostle for Inferno Distribution. the Paul Margolis script tells the story of a Pittsburgh detective who discovers that a series of horrible murders are the work of an Internet-based serial killers’ club.
The production is a result of the 'John Carpenter's Presents' programme in which Carpenter mentors up-and-coming writers and directors. Margolis was part of the programme and passed the script on to Carpenter.
Carpenter’s wife/longtime producer Sandy King will produce The 13th Apostle along with Elizabeth Wang-Lee, Oliver Hengst and William J. Johnson.
JC is currently working on an entry in Showtime/Anchor Bay’s Masters of Horror series - see here for more information.
