It seems that Hollywood simply can not get enough of comic books! If you are a big fan of the H.P. Lovecraft then you'll be pleased to know that popular movie director Ron Howard will be behind the film adaptation of Image Comics' 'The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft.' Lucky for us, the L.A. Times caught up with the renowned director to discuss the project!
"Look, it's challenging, but if we get it right, it could be really original and psychologically interesting and scary in a great way. And it's a graphic novel, this is new territory for me." Regarding the story elements of Lovecraft, Howard went on to say:
"It very cleverly uses H.P. Lovecraft in a fictional way, but there's some loose biographical elements. But it certainly has the flavor and the tone of Lovecraft. The character is a very young Lovecraft."
"I've got literally half-a-dozen projects where essentially I'm waiting for [script] drafts to come in, and there's something I love about all of these ideas. We'll just have to wait to see what comes to fruition. You just never know."
I think that a live-action film adaptation of the graphic novel, if done correctly, could amount to being a huge success. I personally think this is fantastic news and it will be great to see this as an upcoming film. What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing this play out on the big screen?
