Gullermo Del Toro Still Hopes to Make At The Mountains Of Madness
Gullermo Del Toro hasn't let go of the hope of making At The Mountains Of Madness.
Speaking with empireonline, Gullermo Del Toro let it be known that he would love to still make At The Mountains Of Madness. Here is what he had to say:
“For me, the collapse of At The Mountains Of Madness was a soul-shattering experience. It was very difficult for me that that movie didn’t happen. We designed the creatures, the sets, we were scouting the locations, and went through any number of drafts. Everything was going and then it collapsed and it was a big blow. It was a very debilitating moment.
“But I think we may still make it. When I’m brave enough to go and see Prometheus, I’ll know. But for now, I don’t know. We are all nothing but human beings. I go to the theatre, I buy my ticket for Prometheus and I go and see something else, because I’m afraid. I’m not a mental entity, I am also emotional, because the ideas are similar, from what I’ve heard and I’ll see it next week, I promise!”
For those who aren't familiar with At The Mountains Of Madness, it's a story similar to Prometheus. A film Based on At The Mountains Of Madness would probably share similar set pieces to Prometheus and both would contain nearly the same ending. But regardless of Del Toro wanting to make this film, his slate seems full. He working on a Frankenstein film, Slaughterhouse Five, Drood, a re-boot of The Haunted Mansion, Pinocchio, and Beauty and the Beast. It would be awesome if Del Toro could fit in At The Mountains Of Madness but if not then we will have to settle for his other films on the list, but that wouldn't be so bad.
