Saw this on Facebook. It’s painful to contemplate, man. Painful.
H.P. Lovecraft is considered one of the most seminal authors in all of horror and sci-fi literature, with filmmaker Guillero del Toro considered a visionary of cinema, and while del Toro’s previous efforts to adapt Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness never moved forward, he recently confirmed that he’s still interested in making that project become a reality. The project first started to take shape back in the mid-2000s but didn’t seem to make substantial steps forward until the early 2010s, but even with impressive names attached, del Toro’s plans never worked out and he continues to hope the stars will align for the adventure.
I want this movie real bad, AS YOU ALL KNOW. But I suspect that the only way del Toro’s gonna get it made is if he tells the studio that he’s filming something else and nobody comes and checks. I know that sounds stupid, but apparently there’s resistance to doing the movie – and, no: I don’t know why it’s so hard to arrange, either. Maybe they’re worried about it coming out when the stars are right.
