Directors I'd Love To See Make A Comeback (11 person items)

"Given how horror film is booming these days, how is John Carpenter not in on the action? He makes Ghosts of Mars in 2001 and then nothing until the poorly received The Ward in 2010 which was his last film released. More than anyone on this list, old Carpy is begging for a major comeback film."
