Good news my Lovecraftian friends! Filmmaker extraordinaire Guillermo del Toro is going to try again to get a big-screen adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" made. This is what he recently told The Playlist:
As for his shuttered H.P. Lovecraft adaptation "At The Mountains Of Madness" project that got killed in 2011, del Toro said he's going to try one more proper kick at the can soon. "I'm going to try it one more time. Once more into the dark abyss," he laughed. "We're gonna do a big presentation of the project again at the start of the year and see if any [studio's] interested." And yes, Tom Cruise is still game to be on board if they can find a home for it. "Yeah, Tom is still attached. I think it would be so fantastic to make it with him. He's been such a great ally of the project."So keep your flabby claws crossed that the film gets made this time. Ia! Ia!
