Directors to adapt HP Lovecraft tale for big screen
Guillermo del Toro will team up with James Cameron for his next film project, which will be shot in 3D.
The Mexican director behind Pan’s Labyrinth and the Oscar-winning Cameron, who is responsible for the likes of Terminator, Titanic and most recently Avatar, will collaborate on a 3D adaptation of cult horror writer HP Lovecraft‘s tale At The Mountains Of Madness, reports Deadline.com.
The story is set in the 1930s, during a scientific expedition to the South Pole, and tells the gruesome tale of the true origin of mankind.
Del Toro recently pulled out of directing The Hobbit, the long awaited prequel to The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, blaming scheduling conflicts.
He is also collaborating with Disney on a film version of the Haunted Mansion ride, while developing adaptations of Frankenstein and Kurt Vonnegut‘s novel Slaughterhouse 5.
