Tom Cruise Still Looking For a Place At the Mountains of Madness?

Tom CruiseHold the presses, kids. It seems as if we may have written Tom Cruise off just a little too soon when it comes to starring in Guillermo del Toro's film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness.

While doing press for Sanctum, MTV caught up with producer James Cameron, who offered the following to fans:

"Tom does want to do the picture," Cameron said of Cruise's continued interest. "I don't think we have a deal with him yet, but we're hoping to get that closed soon. Guillermo is madly working on a new draft of the script," he added. "Hopefully we'll be shooting by June or July."

The 1931 tale, a deliberately told and increasingly chilling recollection of an Antarctic expedition’s uncanny discoveries and their encounter with untold menace in the ruins of a lost civilization, is a milestone of macabre literature.

Keep it locked right here for more as it comes.

You guys need to chill. Cruise is more than a competent actor, he's just a nutjob.

And del Toro is a brilliant director.
