John Carpenter, a legend in the horror film industry, recently posted a cryptic video on Twitter via Fangoria in which he appears to be sitting in a movie theatre while an off-screen projector plays an unseen film that includes an audible Godzilla scream and foot stomping. This has led to widespread speculation that the director is working on a Godzilla project, which has been met with widespread excitement.
Fangoria has also tagged Shout Factory, Scream Factory, and TokuSHOUTsu on the relevant Twitter thread. The latter is noteworthy for being the streaming home for several popular Japanese film and television programmes, including Godzilla, Kamen Rider, and Ultraman, amongst others. According to Comic Book Resources, this could very well mean that a screening or digital release of Gorgo vs. Godzilla, an unreleased fan film that a young John Carpenter made before he became a well-known director in Hollywood with hits including Halloween, Big Trouble in Halloween, and The Thing, will take place.
Carpenter is quoted as saying in 2003 by CBR that his early works, including the Godzilla fan film, are “devastatingly horrible” and that “no one will see those movies.” CBR cites this quote.
The Ward, which was released in 2010, marked Carpenter's final film in the director's chair. More recently, he composed the score for the film Firestarter, which was adapted from a novel written by Stephen King with the same name.
Apple TV+ is planning to produce a Godzilla and Monsterverse series in the near future. Godzilla vs. Kong, the untitled sequel to the film that was released in 2021 and was directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, Death Note), is scheduled to be released on March 15, 2024.
