Horror and Lovecraft fans, look away now!
News has broke that the long awaited ‘At The Mountains of Madness’ shoot will not be happening this Summer, after Universal refused to entertain the project. It appears the concern of the studio is that the film will be staying loyal to the book and will carry an adult R rating, or an 18 certificate to us Brits. This in turn will limit it’s viewability by the cinema going public and potentially less profit.
Despite big names being involved, with director, Guillermo del Toro, and producer, James Cameron, as well as Tom Cruise lined up for the lead, Universal aren’t up for it, which is a damn shame as I, along with many other true horror and Lovecraft fans, are desperately seeking a brilliant masterpiece like this put to screen.
Looks like we’ll have to wait a little while longer…..
