John Carpenter teases They Live 2

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

I don't know about you but one of my favorite films from Mr. John Carpetner is THEY LIVE starring Roddy Piper, Keith David, and Meg Foster. And if you're as big a fan of the flick as I am, then you'll be excited to hear that – like Shudder's PRINCE OF DARKNESS TV series – now Carpenter is out and about dropping hints and teasing that there may be a sequel to THEY LIVE in the works!

John Carpenter on THEY LIVE 2:

Well, I'm not gonna tell you about that, because it might be closer to reality than you think. There was a feature film. It was a feature film called Resistance, written by, oh, the guy who did the Apes movies. Matt Reeves. But then he moved on, and so the sequel is, well, we'll see. We'll just have to see.

I know this is basically saying that THEY LIVE 2 (or RESISTANCE, or whatever) WAS in the works with Matt Reeves (LET ME IN) at the helm, but still. This might get off the ground so I'm all kinds of excited by the mere possibility. How about you? Let us know below!

The original film followed:

Nada (Roddy Piper), a wanderer without meaning in his life, who discovers a pair of sunglasses capable of showing the world the way it truly is. As he walks the streets of Los Angeles, Nada notices that both the media and the government are comprised of subliminal messages meant to keep the population subdued, and that most of the social elite are skull-faced aliens bent on world domination. With this shocking discovery, Nada fights to free humanity from the mind-controlling aliens.

You can go ahead and chew bubblegum, kick ass, and snag yourself a copy of THEY LIVE on Blu-ray over on Amazon RIGHT HERE.
