All is not lost when it comes to Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft tale “At the Mountains of Madness.” Yes, the project has faced its ups and downs – losing a studio (Universal) at one point over budgetary concerns.
But Del Toro is not giving up. In an interview with The Playlist, he says he’s going to take another crack at finding a home for the story.
Last year, he did express concern over parallels between Prometheus and “At the Mountains of Madness,” however, “I saw it finally and…yes, there are things in common, but, you know, screw it. Lovecraft was there first,” he told the outlet.
Del Toro added, “I’m going to try it one more time. Once more into the dark abyss. We’re gonna do a big presentation of the project again at the start of the year and see if any [studio's] interested … Tom is still attached. I think it would be so fantastic to make it with him. He’s been such a great ally of the project.”
So, keep those fingers crossed, folks!
