Word is Jeremy Passmore (writer/director of Special) is working on a screenplay which the man, John Carpenter is developing. It's supposed to be "Unforgiven as a gangster movie". Well even though I didn't like unforgiven, it's Carpenter, so I'm interested. Here's what Passmore had to say in a recent interview with CHUD.

"It's a bit of a departure. It's definitley more of a very character based crime movie. I don't know what's going on with it right now, but the premise is that this guy was the most [badass] gangster of all time in Las Vegas, and he's left the life and created this whole new world. His wife died but he's raising his kid. He's living in the middle of nowhere and he's this very religious, trying to live a straight life guy. His daughter is now going to school at UCLA and she disappears, and he goes looking for her. The trail leads to Vegas and he has to go get her, and the entire city kind of comes down on top of him."


And furthermore, it's "brutal, violent, and dark at the end" which Carpenter loved. No word on when or if the film is getting made, but let's hope so!
