According to Variety, director John Carpenter has signed on to direct ghost story The Ward for indie Echo Lake. Amber Heard (Pineapple Express) will star as a haunted woman in a mental institution. Carpenter hasn’t directed a feature since Ghosts of Mars in 2001. The Ward will be produced by Echo Lake’s Doug Mankoff, Mike Marcus and Andy Spaulding.
Echo Lake is venturing into broader fare after a string of modest titles such as Tsotsi, Water and Away From Her.
