Guillermo Del Toro Will Try To Make AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS Again

Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro offers an update on his adaptation of At The Mountains Of Madness, saying that he's giving the currently dead project one more try. He also says that Tom Cruise is still attached to star.



In 2011, Universal Pictures decided not to greenlit Guillermo del Toro's adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft novella At The Mountains Of Madness, because the studio wanted a PG-13 rating despite GDT's insistence on an R-rating. Last year, the director stated that, due to the premise being similar to that of Ridley Scott's Prometheus, it'll be a while before we see the project come to life. Now, in an interview with The Playlist, the Hellboy director discusses the movie, and reveals that he's going to try to make it "one more time". "I'm going to try it one more time. Once more into the dark abyss. We're gonna do a big presentation of the project again at the start of the year and see if any [studio's] interested." Del Toro also confirms that action star Tom Cruise is still attached to star in the adaptation. "Yeah, Tom is still attached. I think it would be so fantastic to make it with him. He's been such a great ally of the project." Finally, he says that he has finally seen Prometheus, and is now no longer worried about any similarities between it and At The Mountains Of Madness. "Not really, I saw it finally and.. yes, there are things in common, but, you know, screw it. Lovecraft was there first."
