News: John Carpenter Teases A They Live Sequel

The ret-conned Halloween sequel that's released tomorrow night is going to be a major success for Blumhouse and will definitely spawn further sequels in the long running franchise. Now, with a guaranteed continuation of his horror legacy, it looks like John Carpenter may have his mind on further expanding the world of They Live. When speaking with Den of Geek, the iconic director and prolific musician revealed that a sequel was in the works with Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves but was ultimately scrapped. However, he thinks that the movie might still be a possibility as he's looking at directing another motion picture himself:

“There was a feature film. It was a feature film called Resistance, written by, oh, the guy who did the ‘Apes’ movies. Matt Reeves. But then he moved on.”

Carpenter continued when pressed:

“Well, I’m not gonna tell you about that, because it might be closer to reality than you think. The sequel is, well, we’ll see. We’ll just have to see.”
