According to CHUD.com, John Carpenter is developing a movie that script writers Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio say came about because they "were trying to do Unforgiven as a gangster movie." Titled The Prince, theirs is a story about a Vegas gangster who's left behind his life of crime to try to lead a normal life with his family. This echoes Clint Eastwood's character in Unforgiven, who tried the same thing, only to find himself in the middle of bloodshed and violence all over again. Passmore called the project "a bit of a departure" for Carpenter, who's made a name for himself directing horror movies like The Thing and Halloween. It's not hard to see how you'd get from horror to gangsters, though.
