Del Toro Teaming With James Cameron for First Post-Hobbit Project


After discussing his plans to potentially direct a Haunted Mansion reboot at Comic-Con, Guillermo Del Toro has now officially selected his next project after dropping out of The Hobbit in May — and he has a big-name collaborator. Del Toro will direct an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s Antarctica-set novella, At the Mountains of Madness, with James Cameron, who will serve as producer. This has been a “long-gestating passion project” for Del Toro, who was initially attached to the film in 2004. [Deadline]
