Wait, what?! As the headline suggests, could a sequel to They Live be on the way? Maybe…
With Halloween heading to the big screen in a matter of days, John Carpenter recently spoke to Den of Geek about which of his other movies would be ripe for a “refashioning” at some point in the future. When They Live was suggested, the legendary Horror Master teased, “Well, I’m not gonna tell you about that, because it might be closer to reality than you think.”
Now, there was once a They Live remake of sorts in loose development a few years ago. On that, Carpenter said, “There was a feature film. It was a feature film called Resistance, written by, oh, the guy who did the Apes movies. Matt Reeves. But then he moved on. And so, the sequel is, well, we’ll see. We’ll just have to see.”
Elsewhere, Carpenter himself has previously suggested that there could be a Prince of Darkness TV series being discussed. When asked about that possibility, JC added, “I might have done that, huh? You heard it from me. It’s not a lie, but it’s not ready to go yet. So rather than discuss it, I think I won’t.”
Of course, this is all far from official confirmation of a They Live sequel or a Prince of Darkness TV show, but still, just hearing that such projects could possibly happen is certainly something that will put a grin on the face of many a genre fan.
As ever, expect more on all of this if and when we hear any further developments.
