EXCL: Amber Heard on John Carpenter’s The Ward

Supernatural thriller set in the ’60s

Amber Heard digs horror. Fact. And we love her all the more for it.

The All the Boys Love Mandy Lane star can be seen in The Stepfather, which hits theaters tomorrow, and she tells us she had a blast playing one of the undead in Zombieland. Up next, John Carpenter’s The Ward which she recently wrapped shooting and told us a bit about on the phone today.

“I think it’s awesome,” she enthused. “John is a legend and rightfully so. I love that I got to work with him.”

Heard co-stars alongside Danielle Panabaker and Jared Harris in what is Carpenter’s first feature film since Ghosts of Mars. “My character is arrested and thrown into an institution in the ’60s,” she explains of the supernatural thriller. “She meets all of these other characters and things start happening in the institution. You have to second-guess your main character, me, because she is in a mental institution. There are a lot of things that are coming in and out of the story and you don’t know what to think. It’s pretty intense. The film’s in post-production and it will hopefully honor the script, but it was fantastic and a thrilling story.”

The Ward is expected to hit theaters next year.
