More talk of Madness...

Every couple of months or so Guillermo del Toro drops some news on his long in the works (seven years and counting) adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness, and during a recent interview with the BBC he had this to say about the project:

"There are many screenplays I have written that are looking for financing… I've been desperately trying to finance it [At the Mountains of Madness] and I can't access the funds."

So will AtMoM ever grace the big screen? As with so many other films, we'll have to wait and see, but del Toro's The Hobbit (the first of two debuts in 2011) should put the director in the position to make any film he chooses, including a big budget Lovecraft film like At the Mountains of Madness...

  1. Why will no one fund this? Why!?! What's wrong with you people!!

  2. Hope it works out - Del Toro would be one of the few successful directors who could do this justice
    BTW sure like those early HPL book covers - does anyone know if you can pick these up as posters?
