John August to Pen The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft

We've been talking about a feature film version of the Image Comics property The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft for a while now, and it looks like a writer has finally been tapped to pen the script.

John August (Frankenweenie, Dark Shadows) is the man handling the adaptation as a potential directing vehicle for Ron Howard.

The story centers on Lovecraft and his encounter with an ancient book of unspeakable lore (Can you guess the book's name? I bet you can!) which passes on to him a terrible curse. The introverted author suddenly becomes a great force of unwitting destruction and is also the only one capable of battling the forces that he unleashes to the world.

Keep it here for more as it comes.

Ron Howard? FUCK NO! Keep Captain Bland away from Lovecraft and all things Lovecraft related.
