During a Q&A eventually weekend’s Texas Frightmare Weekend, a fan requested Carpenter if Keith David’s Childs, who’s final seen sharing a bottle of J&B whiskey with Kurt Russell’s MacReady, has been assimilated by the creature on the finish of the film. Carpenter at all times dodges this query, however this time he gave a extra intriguing reply.
As you may see on this video (hat tip to Creepy Catalog), Carpenter stated, “I have been sworn to secrecy, okay, because there may be, I don’t know if there will be, there may be a ‘Thing 2.'”
Would Carpenter take the reins as soon as once more? Carpenter hasn’t made a characteristic since 2010’s “The Ward,” however he advised the Texas Frightmare crowd that he just lately directed a shot-in-Prague collection titled “John Carpenter’s Suburban Screams” remotely. Carpenter is 5 years youthful than modern Martin Scorsese, who simply accomplished a three-and-a-half-hour epic, so who’s to say he is not up for one more gooey go-round with “The Thing?” This is all extremely speculative, however the notion of Carpenter reteaming with Russell and David (even when they’re human popsicles) is just too scrumptious to disregard.
