Ah ben voilà quelque chose que je voudrais voir : une adaptation originale du At the Mountains of Madness de Lovecraft par Guillermo del Toro ! (Au lieu de ça, les costards-cravattes des studios préfèrent financer un remake pérave de The Thing. Pffff.)
At the Mountains of Madness - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Director Guillermo del Toro and screenwriter Matthew Robbins wrote a screenplay based on Lovecraft’s story, but in 2006 had trouble getting Warner Bros. to finance the project. Del Toro wrote, “The studio is very nervous about the cost and it not having a love story or a happy ending, but it’s impossible to do either in the Lovecraft universe.” In July 2010 it was announced that the film would be made in 3D and that James Cameron would become producer, and Tom Cruise was attached to star. This “was a startling prospect considering Lovecraft’s tale had long been considered unfilmable.” Del Toro confirmed that the film would begin production as early as May 2011 and start filming in June. However, in March 2011, it was announced that “Universal refused to greenlight the project due to del Toro’s insistence that it be released with an R rating rather than a PG-13.” According to Salon.com, "Universal wants to hold onto the project in the event that it changes its mind and decides to make it later, either as an R or PG-13 movie. But del Toro is already trying to set up Mountains at another studio (possibly 20th Century Fox, which released Cameron’s Titanic and Avatar).
