According to Guillermo Del Toro, who was planning to make a big budget adaptation of HP Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, the upcoming Alien pseudo-prequel, Prometheus, has put the final end to his plans. But the reason why gives us Lovecraft fans hope. See, Del Toro says that his movie is dead…because Prometheus captures everything he wanted to do with ATMOM.
Basically he’s saying Prometheus is very Lovecraft-inspired. I can deal with that, and if the guy who has wanted all his life to get Lovecraft on the big screen is saying, “this is it, this is how it should be” then I’m sold.
Not that I wasn’t planning to see Prometheus, but this does give me extra incentive.
