Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here. Here’s another piece of early concept art, this one a photo manip by WETA for a project called DARKCHYLDE, based on a comic I’ve never read. Because I’m not familiar with the property, I’m not sure what to think. Stuff like this can either be all Hot Topic and forced and phony, or it might well be a groovy monster movie with a strong female lead. Either way, with WETA involved, you know it will at least look great, and I’ll certainly be keeping my ears open for more information as the film worms its way through development:
Darkchylde Film Taking Flight? Just wanted to give a heads up that the first filmic images have been captured of Darkchylde, based on the comic of the same name. I am intimately involved, as is 5 time Oscar Winner Richard Taylor (King Kong, Lord of the Rings) and Weta Workshop, and Dark Horse (Hellboy). Story revolves around a very pretty girl's curse that allows her to transform into different creatures from her nightmares. Ariel Chylde is a physical pandora's box, and these creatures borrow her blood and bones to hitchhike over to our world. Everytime Ariel changes, she sets a different creature free in her small southern town.
We have the A list team, and our expressed goal is to produce an original, beautifully shot, atmospheric horror film, played very straight and very dark, ala a modern Carrie or Ridley Scott's Alien, with a wicked, sexy cool Underworld vibe. Our only wish is to create a film for the horror fans of the world to get excited about, so everyone please wish us luck! Promise to report more when able. ~Randy Queen Darkchylde Ent.
