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.
We 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.
Hell, if you would have told me 30 years ago that the kid who played Richie Cunningham on "Happy Days" would grow up to be one of the most influential and important directors of our time, I'd have called you crazy. Yet, that's exactly what happened with Ron Howard, and now lucky for us horror geeks he could be ready to tackle some tentacle-laden goodness!
Image Comics has announced the imminent release of a new comic fictionalizing the life and times of H.P. Lovecraft. The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft blends a touch of reality with fantastical fiction, and puts the iconic author himself as the main character living in a world of nightmare.
