Ron Howard to Tackle Lovecraft?

The Strange Adventures of H.P. LovecraftWe haven't heard anything about The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft since February, but man, is there something to talk about now! It looks as if director Ron Howard is done cracking codes and chasing demons. At least for now. Instead he's turning his eyes to tentacles and things in the walls.

According to the LA Times Ron Howard is pretty damned excited about directing a big-budget adaptation of The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft based on the Image Comics series.

"It very cleverly uses H.P. Lovecraft in a fictional way, but there's some loose biographical elements. But it certainly has the flavor and the tone of Lovecraft," Howard tells the Times. "The character is a very young Lovecraft. Look, it's challenging, but if we get it right, it could be really original and psychologically interesting and scary in a great way. And it's a graphic novel; this is new territory for me."

For more information about the comic, which is in stores now, visit the official website, and check out a trailer for it below!
