It’s nice to see John Carpenter return to the genre after so many years away. Although seemingly much happier as a composer, we’re just delighted to have him play a hand in conjuring up scares again.

To that end, it’s wonderful to hear that Carpenter will dive back into crafting a new film score in with A24’s upcoming Death of a Unicorne.

The project, described as a dark comedy, will star Ghostbusters: Afterlife’s Paul Rudd and reigning scream queen Jenna Ortega.

“A father (Rudd) and daughter (Ortega) accidentally hit and kill a unicorn while enroute to a weekend retreat, where his billionaire boss (Richard Grant) seeks to exploit the creature’s miraculous curative properties.”

Writer-director Alex Scharfman will make his debut with the project, under the guidance of producer, and A24 favourite, Ari Aster.

Carpenter is expected to re-team with his son Cody and his godson Daniel Davies for the score, marking their fifth collaboration in as many years.

Death of a Unicorne wrapped production this summer, after receiving an interim agreement from SAG-AFTRA clearing its cast to complete the project.

Currently a release date remains unknown, but given the serious drought about to affect Hollywood now that the well is running dry, we don’t doubt that Death of a Unicorne will be along quite soon. Watch this space.
