Everybody knows about Guillermo del Toro’s desire to bring AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS to the big screen. But did you know about THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF H.P. LOVECRAFT? Learn more about the comic miniseries and the screenwriter rumored to be rewriting it after the jump.
According to The Tracking Board (http://www.tracking-board.com/), FRANKENWEENIE scribe and frequent Tim Burton collaborator John August may be coming on board to rewrite an adaptation of the comic miniseries THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF H.P. LOVECRAFT for director Ron Howard. The comic’s writer, Mac Carter, did the original script. Here’s the synopsis for THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF H.P. LOVECRAFT from the comic’s official website:
“Toiling away as a timid and eccentric writer of pulp horror stories, H.P. Lovecraft, is powerless in the world…in love with a girl who doesn’t love him back, mired in a profession that inspires no respect and frozen in the grip of a terrible writer's block. Until one day when everything changes. Lovecraft comes in contact with an ancient book that passes onto him an insidious curse: whenever he sleeps, his darkest nightmares come true and are loosed on the world. Suddenly, this shy and bumbling writer becomes both an unwitting god of destruction and the only man who can ﬁght the wickedness he unleashes. It’s a fantastical revision of the life and work of H.P. Lovecraft, a story in the mold of the classic Universal horror movies. A weird tale indeed.”
