For Now, We Won't be Climbing the Mountains of Madness


There have been talks for a while about Guillermo del Toro's epic adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's Mountains of Madness and there was even brief talks that the film was actually going to begin shooting this June.

Unfortunately according to Criterion Cast, they sent an e-mail over to Del Toro asking if the June start date for Madness was actually true? 

Del Toro replied; "The opposite-  Dead"

I know this was a very personal project for Guillermo del Toro, but hopefully one day we will see his adaptation, but I guess Universal just didn't want to drop huge amounts of cash into a R-rated horror film. But maybe there is something else to this story, hopefully this isn't the end, its just another obstacle he has to face.

What do you guys think?
