Let’s go climb The Mountains of Madness!

Last week, I posted about the news that Guillermo del Toro would write and produce a new movie version of Disney’s The Haunted Mansion. Perhaps he would direct it. . . .

Ah, but now we know he won’t, because he’s announced his next film, and it’s the long hoped-for adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness. This double-punch of horror love is the best genre news I’ve heard since the new U.S. Godzilla announcement.

Go to Black Gate to read more gushing about this.
