Through the last couple years of struggle with Universal, anger over potential R ratings, 150 million dollar proposed budgets and A-list actors "attached" who never even heard of the deal... Obviously, Del Toro and Cameron were faking us all out and hoping to fake out Universal, too... Cruise was never attached, either. It seems this was a project that had no chance of success.But now that Del Toro and Cameron are gone from At The Mountains Of Madness, Mihai and Sparks are making the H.P. Lovecraft film adaptation.The Producing-directing team of Carrie Cain Sparks and Shadow Mihai - shadowmihai.com have announced they have begun pre-production on an original feature film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At The Mountains Of Madness. As a precursor to their film, they last week released the sjLume.com audio book version of Lovecraft's At The Mountains Of Madness along with a companion e-book version in various electronic formats. The audio book was directed by Shadow Mihai.I haven't seen the script (they won't let a stumbler like me near it with a 30 foot word processor) but Director Mihai, who wrote the script for the new adaptation, insists that there is plenty of theme based faithfully on the original Lovecraft work, and several unconventional storytelling angles that are compelling and unusual. Sparks and Mihai say that the production values will be similar to the intended Del Toro work. They will shoot live action and in the 3D format.So many of us Lovecraft fans and horror fans (and fans of 3D film) were let down when Del Toro dropped At The Mountains Of Madness. But Mihai and Sparks intend to produce the film out of their own company, Stella James Studios. A start date for the historic film is supposed to be announced this week on sjLume.com.
