What’s the next stop for Guillermo del Toro after finishing Hellboy 2: The Golden Army? According to Latino Review, the director’s next project will take place At the Mountains of Madness.
The title will be immediately familiar to fans of the director — not to mention readers of H.P. Lovecraft, since it comes from the author’s 1936 story about a doomed Antarctic expedition. Del Toro has been trying for years to get his Madness adaptation off the ground, but until now, hasn’t been able to secure studio financing. According to the Latino Review report, Universal has finally signed on — now the only question is whether it’s at all possible to finish the project before (you guessed it) the Great Hollywood Strike of 2008.
