John Carpenter Says He'd Love to Direct a Movie Set in Europe

Has it really been almost nine years since John Carpenter directed The Ward? Time passes by so quickly, doesn’t it? Carpenter keeps himself pretty busy these days creating new music, touring, and most recently, providing music for this year’s Halloween sequel. What plans does he have for the future? Directing another movie sounds like a dream come true to me.

Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with the horror master himself, who teased potentially stepping back behind the camera again:

“I would love to direct something, if it’s the right thing to do at my age. “I’m not going to make another Thing, I’ll tell you that. I’m not going to the Arctic again. I’m not going to do that. I want to take it easy. I want to enjoy myself!”

Carpenter continued:

“I’ve wanted to do something in Europe and I’ve wanted to do something in Venice. I haven’t gotten a story for it though. What a place! What a strange place! And Venice is sinking! Wow. But I don’t know. I’d love to do something in Europe. That would be fun to do. There are two important things in my life, though. Basketball, when the season starts, and video games. And to play video games you have to sit in a chair and not really get up and do anything. I love that. That’s my job now, to sit around and do nothing!”

One thing I think we can all agree is that Carpenter still has the passion and drive to deliver one more epic project. Stay tuned.
