It’s now been almost 10 years since John Carpenter directed his last movie, 2010’s The Ward, but the horror master has recently expressed an interest in getting back into the director’s chair for another film. And while nothing is in the works at this time, he notes, Carpenter just expressed that very same desire in a chat with Collider at Cannes this week.

Carpenter told the site, “I don’t have one scheduled but I’m working on things. I made a lot of movies and I got burned out and I had to stop for a while. I have to have a life. Circumstance would have to be correct for me to do it again.”

“I’d love to make a little horror film… that would be great. Or a big adventure film,” he added.

“It would be a project that I like that’s budgeted correctly. Nowadays they make these young directors do movies for $2 million when the movie is written for $10 million. So you have to squeeze it all in there and I don’t want to do that any more.”

Carpenter was also asked if he’d do a TV series, to which he replied: “I would do one.”
