Fangoria Radio got to chatting with Masters of Horror creator Mick Garris the other night, who revealed, unsurprisingly, that he is off to do Stephen King’s Bag of Bones as his next film according to Fango. The story is about an author who retreats to his lake house in order to try writing again after the loss of his wife.
He also revealed that Joe (The Howling) Dante would be taking the helm on Thirst (pictured), the remake of the 1979 Aussie film about blood farmers. It sure is nice to hear about Joe getting back into our genre with a full-fledged feature, even if it is a remake.
During the same show John Carpenter called in to congratulate Garris on the new gig and revealed that, while he’s sure it’ll be his next project, nothing is set in stone for L.A. Gothic yet, which is supposed to be Carpenter’s first feature since Ghosts of Mars.
Stay tuned for more on all three projects as we get it!
Hope for the best from Carpenter in the Dread Central forums!
