A reader to SlashFilm.com sent in the first teaser poster for John Carpenter’s new film JOHN CARPENTER’S RIOT starring Nicolas Cage. Originally titled SCARED STRAIGHT and attached to xXx director Rob Cohen, "the prison thriller tells the story of a troubled youth who is sent to the Scared Straight crime-prevention program. But when a riot breaks out and the prisoners take him hostage, a lifer (played by Nicolas Cage) is forced to help the young man out." Joe Gazzam’s screenplay is said to be one of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. Here’s hoping this is one hell of a comeback from John Carpenter (who’s last theatrical release was 2001’s GHOSTS OF MARS)! Poster below!
