John Carpenter is set to direct a new comic book adaptation. The legendary horror director will direct Darkchylde, based on Randy Queen’s comic book series.
The series is about a southern teenage girl named Ariel Chylde who is cursed to become the creatures from her many recurring nightmares. Every time Ariel transforms, she sheds her skin and a new nightmare emerges from her Id to act out her deepest, darkest impulses.
The comic was a hit in the late 1990s and early 2000s and even outsold Spider-Man, Superman, and Batman in both domestic and foreign audiences during that period.
