Guillermo Del Toro Shares Test Footage From Scrapped AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS Adaptation

Guillermo del Toro came very close to getting his adaptation of At The Mountains of Madness to the screen, and has now shared our first look at some CGI test footage from the cancelled film.

As fans of the filmmaker will no doubt be aware, Guillermo del Toro was attached to helm an adaptation of H.P Lovecraft's At The Mountains of Madness about ten years ago, and the Blade 2 director has now shared our first look at some CGI test footage.

The list of projects Guillermo del Toro has been involved with that never came to fruition is almost as long as his actual filmography, and this ill-fated take on Lovecraft's sci-fi horror novella is arguably the one fans regret missing out on the most.

The ambitious, big-budget project, which had both Tom Cruise and James Cameron on board as producers, obviously never saw the light of day, but Del Toro was already deep into pre-production when the plug was pulled.

Now, Del Toro has shared some brief footage from the cancelled film to his new Instagram account (via FearHQ.com).

Lovecraft's novella tells the story of an Antarctic expedition whose members encounter an ancient civilization older than the human race beneath the ice. This clip shows one of the terrifying creatures, referred to as "Elder Things" in the book, approaching an unfortunate explorer.

"All CGI test for a rig - ILM for AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS (a decade ago) never-before-seen," the Cabinet of Curiosities maestro captioned his post.

There have actually been several attempts by other studios to get an adaptation of At The Mountains of Madness off the ground, but nothing ever came to fruition. Is there a chance this footage could ultimately afford Del Toro the opportunity to pick up where he left off? We can live in hope!
