Great news today, Guillermo Del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Hellboy”) has chosen his next project to direct and it’s the one fans (and I personally) have been most keen for – his long-gestating passion project “At the Mountains of Madness”.
Del Toro, currently filming “Hellboy II: The Golden Army,” has apparently found a home for the project at Universal Pictures reports Latino Review.
The acclaimed H.P. Lovecraft-penned 1931 story follows explorers who journey to Antarctica where they uncover the remains of highly evolved creatures neither plant or animal. When much of the party is slaughtered, the rest investigate the remains of an ancient civilisation.
Don Murphy’s Angry Films is producing. Del Toro still remains attached to film a new incarnation of “Tarzan” but that script is still being worked on.
