Lovecraft, the graphics novel, is the next movie adaptation in the works. Game of Thrones was one of the most exciting series of all time. It’s over though, and the finale is still something to talk about. And now, there are rumors that the series creators are in talks with Warner Bros to bring the novel Lovecraft to theaters. The premise is right up our alley. The graphic novel works on the premise that the monsters in all the Lovecraft creations are in fact, real. That’s just a loose reconstruction of the Jack Black movie, Goosebumps.
Phil Hay and May Manfredi, who previously gave us movies like Destroyer and The Investigation are writing the script. Lovecraft is set in the 20s though, so be ready for some incredible old world sequences. David Benioff and D.B Weiss, the minds behind Game of Thrones have signed on for a deal, according to ihorror.
Lovecraft novels require a lot of grit and of course, resources to being onto the big screen. Each scene would be thousands, if not millions of dollars in production money. There’s no doubt that the duo and Warner Bros have signed up for a daunting task. Here’s wishing them the best of luck.
Its interesting to see that new age content creators are also looking at making content on retro creators as well. There’s the movie, Walt Before Disney and the other movie, Saving Mrs. Banks. That reminds me, I have to start writing my horror novel. Maybe a hundred years later, someone will write a book about my life and times.
