At the Mountains of Madness, the Movie

Well, it looks like the Cthulhu mythos of H.P. Lovecraft is finally coming the big screen, as the movie script of At the Mountains of Madness is currently being passed around the Hollywood big wigs. Let’s just hope Hollywood can do it right… And if they don’t, I’ll call Yog-Sothoth to set them straight. Apparently, the producer will be James Cameron, and the script, or initial script, has been drafted by draft by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy movie) and Matthew Robbin. More information here. Also, there’s a review of a very early draft of the script here, though its not entirely flattering. Oh well.

Now, before you get all excite, it looks like Tom Cruise is considering the lead role… Elder Gods save us all. If that happens, the movie will obviously become an unmitigated disaster. Pray to the Great Old Ones that Cameron knows better. Otherwise, will someone please summon the Mi-go (aka, the Fungi from Yuggoth) to abduct Cruise and show him some real cosmic horror for a change? I mean really…
