First Photos of Amber Heard in John Carpenter's The Ward
After roughly eight years, John Carpenter is finally back to directing once again. His newest film, The Ward, stars Amber Heard, Danielle Panabaker, Lyndsy Fonseca, and a few other young actresses, and is a psychological thriller set in a mental institution. Over on the production website (via Dread Central), a few new photos and a bit of early artwork for The Ward have popped up. Considering we've seen nothing from this yet and it is John Carpenter's long-awaited return to directing, I thought I'd feature these photos, which actually look pretty cool. The ghost looks damn creepy, too. They're not much, but still take a look below.
The Ward is an intense psychological thriller set in a mental institution where a young woman, Kristen (Amber Heard) is haunted by a mysterious and deadly ghost. As danger creeps closer, she comes to realize that this ghost might be darker than she could have imagined. I probably otherwise wouldn't be interested in this if it weren't John Carpenter. I just hope it lives up to some of his better films and isn't another Ghosts of Mars. As far as we know, this doesn't have a US distributor and was produced independently. We're not sure when this will arrive, but it is still shooting and will probably be ready by next year some time. Thoughts?
