John Carpenter took us into The Fog in 1980. Now, we will be returning. The Master of Horror has announced that a sequel to his ghostly film is currently in the early stages of development, ScreenRant reports. And get this, Carpenter is on board for the film.
The Fog is set in a coastal California town, Antonio Bay. We watch as mysterious mist envelopes the town as its residents prepare for a centennial celebration of the town’s founding. But the celebration is cut short as the town is invaded by deadly guests, the spirits of mariners who were killed when their ship went down long ago.
Carpenter’s film did not get a lot of love when it was released. The 2005 remake got even less, being disliked by critics and viewers alike. But maybe this time things will go more swimmingly.
Here’s a look back at the trailer for the original that starred Jamie Lee Curtis and her mother Janet Leigh, Adrienne Barbeau, and Tom Atkins.
