Deadline reports that the director has teamed up with "Friday Night Lights" actress Connie Britton to create a female-driven drama for FX.

We Can't Wait To Hear David Fincher's "I Don't Care" ResponseNiels Arden Oplev is not too happy with Hollywood, for entirely predictable reasons.

First Look At 'Trespass'; New Films From Jennifer Lynch, Dennis Iliadis & Niels Arden OplevEven though "Fangland" with Hilary Swank seems to have fallen apart, John Carpenter seems well on his way with a new project, an adaptation of the comic "Darkchylde." Created by Randy Queen, the comics follow "a young girl named Ariel Chylde who regularly sheds her skin and turns into her deepest, darkest nightmares." Richard Taylor of WETA recently dropped some test footage from the film (which you can watch below) and indicated they hope to get things going on the film within the year. We've never really paid much attention to the comic, and considering Carpenter hasn't made a film worth caring about in over a decade (this year's "The Ward" was dead-on-arrival at TIFF) we're finding it difficult to muster up too much excitement about this one. But in case dorks start complaining about the CGI in the WETA clip, it's test footage guys, nothing close to final, so relax.
