Scenariul este scris de Michael si Shawn Ramussen.
The man behind such cult classics as Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Big Trouble in Little China, known best as John Carpenter, will finally return to directing after 8 years with a film called The Ward. The psychological thriller will star Amber Heard as a young woman in a mental institution who is terrorized by a ghost. Obviously there’s probably going to be a lot more to the story than just that, but that’s all that was revealed at this time. Shooting is scheduled to begin in May, with Echo Lake Entertainment and Saw series’ Peter Block producing and financing.
“The Ward is the kind of script that I’ve been looking for: a complex, visceral story, full of suspense and scares,” Carpenter told Hollywood Reporter. The script was written by Michael and Shawn Rasmussen.
