Guillermo del Toro Offers Update on At the Mountains of Madness

Guillermo del ToroIf there’s one project out there that fans should be foaming at the mouth for, it is without question Guillermo del Toro’s At the Mountains of Madness, a dream project for the great director and one that looks as if it’s moving along quite nicely!

In an interview with The LA Times’ 24 Frames, del Toro revealed that “he’s actively engaged with the project and moving ahead with the tale of the mysteries and monsters on an Antarctic expedition. In fact, just last week del Toro met with studio Universal for the so-called summit meeting in which he walked executives through his concepts and models for the movie. The script is also ready, he said.

And lest you think producer James Cameron is simply putting his name on it while he’s off working on Avatar 2, think again: The Terminator director was present for the summit meeting and has been offering Del Toro some notes.”

When asked how soon shooting could begin, del Toro replied that he hopes to start lensing the project this summer, possibly as early as June. Hit up the above link for a bit more.

And the angels sing.

    If Cameron is offering story notes this puppy is in deep poop.

    Maybe Cameron has some “fantastic” ideas for inserting a whiny environmental theme.

    I’d love to see this project go ahead with a modest or small budget so that fewer compromises have to be made. Lovecraft is not going to be appealing (or understandable) to the average dumb ass American movie goer; trying to make it so will move the material too far away from it’s initial inspiration.

      Dude, let’s not forget that Cameron also delivered some of the genre’s greatest films as well.

        You’re talking about “Titanic” no doubt. Tell the truth,it’s even in your Blu-Ray player as we speak.

        That was when he was young and fresh, like a virgin tampon. Now he is old and mouldy like a tampon that has been left in a cheap whore’s pussy for far too long.

        Titanic, Avatar. He is not the same person who created the original Terminator, this is a man who has been lauded by Hollywood and that changes people. His work is now self-indulgent and self-important and way too f’n long. He, like Lucas, has become about the technology and the money — there’s no art left.

        That’s like saying George Lucas offered up Star Wars as if that matters anymore. It doesn’t. Cameron is a hack businessman motivated by his humongous ego that has garnered two really awful films in the past twenty years, so it doesn’t matter if he invented slice bread, it’s all past tense now. That’s not Cameron anymore.
