Guillermo Del Toro says Prometheus has probably killed his At The Mountain's of Madness movie


Oh no, it looks like Guillermo Del Toro's big budget adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" will never happen thanks to Ridley Scott's movie Prometheus. On the fan forums of his official site, Del Toro said:

Prometheus started filming a while ago- right at the time we were in preproduction on PACIFIC RIM. The title itself gave me pause- knowing that ALIEN was heavily influenced by Lovecraft and his novella.

This time, decades later with the budget and place Ridley Scott occupied, I assumed the greek metaphor alluded at the creation aspects of the HPL book. I believe I am right and if so, as a fan, I am delighted to see a new RS science fiction film, but this will probably mark a long pause -if not the demise- of ATMOM.

The sad part is- I have been pursuing ATMOM for over a decade now- and, well, fter Hellboy II two projects I dearly loved were not brought to fruition for me.

The good part is: One project did... And I am loving it and grateful for the blessings I have received.


Onwards

When a fan asked why Prometheus would have such a devastating effect on Madness, Del Toro added:

Same premise. Scenes that would be almost identical.

This is my sad Cthulhu face: (;,;)

  1. Hey now, just 'cause zombie movies have many scenes that might be very similar doesn't mean we should stop making zombie movies!

    ATMoM must happen! One way or the other...

  2. I deny RS had very much to do with Prometheus - except to add his name to the marquee at the studio's insistence...ATMoM is the right film to make.

  3. Personally, I didn't see much by the way of similarity to ATMoM in Prometheus. So, Guillermo, don't chicken out. Make it happen!
