JoBlo reports that “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” director Guillermo del Toro will helm a big screen adaptation of author David Moody’s “Hater” for Universal Pictures.
The story is set in a society rocked by a sudden increase in the number of unprovoked violent assaults on individuals. There are no apparent links between the Haters (the attackers) or their victims and no obvious reason for their sudden outbursts of violence. Everyone has the potential to become either a Hater or a victim.
del Toro’s long-gestating adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness” was scheduled to be his first post-HBII flick, hopefully that still remains the case.
