John Carpenter's The Ward (2010)

Next month one of the many films John Carpenter is developing starts production. The film is an intense psychological thriller set in a mental institution and will have Amber Heard (Mandy Lane, Pineapple Express) starring as the female lead. Kristen (Heard) is a young woman 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. Carpenter is finally returning to directing since the eight year gap of his last film Ghosts of Mars. It's nice to see Amber Heard returning to horror after her great performance in All The Boys Love Mandy Lane. A film I doubt most North Americans will ever see legally.

Danielle Panabaker (Mr Brooks) and Mamie Gummer (Taking Woodstock) have joined the cast and will play Heard's fellow patients.
