At the Mountains of Madness Still a Possibility for Guillermo del Toro
It sounds as if Guillermo del Toro still has come cinematic mountain climbing on his agenda as the visionary director shared some interesting tidbits on the official status of his version of the H.P. Lovecraft tale At the Mountains of Madness.
“I think we may still make it. When I’m brave enough to go and see Prometheus, I’ll know,” Del Toro revealed. “But for now, I don’t know. We are all nothing but human beings. I go to the theatre, I buy my ticket for Prometheus and I go and see something else because I’m afraid. I’m not a mental entity, I am also emotional because the ideas are similar, from what I’ve heard, and I’ll see it next week, I promise!”
Universal Pictures’ would-be H.P. Lovecraft adaptation “tells the story of geologist William Dyer, a professor from Miskatonic University. He writes to disclose hitherto unknown and closely kept secrets in the hope that he can deter a planned and much publicized scientific expedition to Antarctica. On a previous expedition there, a party of scholars from Miskatonic University, led by Dyer, discovered fantastic and horrific ruins (including strange fossils of unheard-of creatures and carved stones tens of millions of years old) and a dangerous secret of the City of the Old Ones that lay beyond a range of mountains taller than the Himalayas.”
Keep your fingers crossed.
