Horror movie legend John Carpenter took to Twitter via Fangoria to post a coy video of him sitting in a movie theater, as an off-screen projector shows an unseen movie with an audible Godzilla scream and stomping on it. strong, leading to widespread speculation that the director has a Godzilla project on the way.
In the Twitter thread, Fangoria also tags Shout Factory, Scream Factory, and TokuSHOUTsu. The latter, in particular, is the streaming home of many notable popular Japanese movies and TV series, from Kamen Rider and Ultraman to Godzilla. Comic Book Resources notes that this could very well mean a digital screening or release of Gorgo vs. Godzilla, a previously unreleased fan film made by a young Carpenter before becoming a well-known director in Hollywood with hits including Halloween, Big Trouble in Halloween and The Thing.
In 2003, CBR also notes that Carpenter himself said that his early work, including the Godzilla fan film, is “devastatingly bad” and that “no one will see those movies.”
Carpenter’s last turn in the director’s chair was for 2010’s The Ward. Most recently, he composed the score for Firestarter, which is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.
Apple TV+ has a Godzilla and Monsterverse series in the works. An untitled sequel to Godzilla vs. 2021’s Kong, directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, Death Note), will be released on March 15, 2024.
