Artificial Continuum

When it comes to classic horror H.P. Lovecraft rules supreme. Tales of maddening confusion, unimaginable horror, and disturbing imagery, whether you love him or hate him there are very little storytellers like Lovecraft. However, it is not surprising that there has yet to be a Lovecraftian film adaptation.

However, it appears that this may well change in coming years. Deadline reports today that veteran fantasy horror director Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) plans to adapt Lovecraft's most famous tale At the Mountains of Madness. Oscar winning director James Cameron will also assist in providing technical support, and apparently 3D effects. Del Toro will also write the script along with Matthew Robbins (Mimic). Even though Del Toro is incredibly excited for the film, and is passionate about the project, he still expresses concern for how the film will perform: "It's R-rated and it's expensive and it doesn't have a happy ending."
