I’ve known for a while now that Guillermo del Toro was working on an adaptation of Lovecraft’s seminal work, At The Mountains of Madness, and that James Cameron was on board as the producer, which means this movie should really rock. But here’s some more good news: Ron Perlman will also star in the movie:
I’ve been a fan of Mr. Perlman’s work since The Name of the Rose. He’s one of those actors who, whenever I see him in a movie, I just have to watch. He was incredible as Hellboy, and clearly there’s a third on the way.
I can’t think of too many other actors (other than, oh Jeffrey Combs) I would rather see in a Lovecraft movie.
By the way, let’s all hope he misspoke and the movie is set at the SOUTH pole, not the NORTH pole.
