Lovecraft

It’s being reported that former geek, present directing god — Ron Howard may be finally bringing H.P. Lovecraft to the big screen; though it won’t be quite how we expected to first see the master horror writer appear in film. Howard would be making the movie based on the Image Comics’ graphic novel, The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft.

Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment purchased the rights to the graphic novel — which doesn’t even get released until April 8, 2009 — with the hopes that it would become a possible project for Ron Howard. No word on if he’ll actually take the job or not, but we can hope.

Strange Adventures is a sort of hybrid of Lovecraft’s life and his works — a type of fictional biopic-style fantasy horror! Basically, the book tells the tale of Lovecraft and his family’s real struggles with sickness and his own battles with his writing until one day he becomes cursed by a book, which turns his most evil thoughts and nightmares into reality.

If there’s one great out there whose work still remains relatively untouched, that great is H.P. Lovecraft. Many of his works have been rumored to be heading to the screen in some way or another, most notable at the hands of current master of haunting and magically visual cinema — Guillermo del Toro.
