John Carpenter directing The Ward

He’s signed on for Amber Heard ghost story

John Carpenter has signed on to direct ghostly horror pic The Ward.

Yes, while Hollywood moves ahead on “re-imagining” one of his best previous movies (The Thing), Carpenter has agreed to work on the pic for Echo Lake.

Amber Heard – last seen in Pineapple Express- will play a haunted woman trapped inside a mental institution.

Expect Marcus Nispel to be hired to remake The Ward three days after it’s released.
