John Carpenter to helm Darkchylde adaptation

John Carpenter will helm the adaptation of the comic book series Darkchylde.

Created by Randy Queen in the late nineties, the series follows a teenage girl who is able to transform into a variety of creatures from her subconsciousness.

“Randy Queen’s hijacked angel, Ariel Chylde, is the best young female character since Laurie Strode in Halloween,” Carpenter told Shock Til You Drop following the announcement. “Bringing Ariel and her dark mysteries to life should be quite an adventure for us all.”

There is currently no release date scheduled for the film.
