Influenced by the work of seminal horror writer H. P. Lovecraft, In the Mouth of Madness is the third installment in John Carpenter‘s Apocalypse Trilogy, preceded by The Thing and Prince of Darkness. The 1994 film’s title references Lovecraft’s 1936 novella, At the Mountains of Madness, and insanity plays a significant role in both the movie and the novella.
Last February, Warner Bros. announced that a live-action Robotech was under development. The studio was eyeing Andy Muschietti (Shadow of the Colossus, Mama) to direct the film. Now comes word that rights to the popular anime series have moved over to Sony Pictures.
Variety says the studio hopes to move forward with Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton (300, The Immortals) as producers, and with Michael Gordon (300, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) writing the script. No word yet on if the studio is still considering Muschietti as director. The project will be overseen at Sony Pictures by Sony Pictures Entertainment Group President Doug Belgrad, Columbia Pictures Production Chief Michael De Luca, and Sony Pictures Vice President of Creative Production Matthew Milam.
The remake of Fright Night is right around the corner, to be released on August 19, 2011, and stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Imogen Poots, and David Tennant. With the countdown on, the studio has released some new international posters, focusing on the main characters, which you can see at the bottom of this post.
I’m looking forward to seeing this flick, but like I’ve mentioned in a few previous posts, when it comes to remakes it always counts to be cautious. Best approach this one with a “not sure if want” attitude, folks.
Having said that, however, the trailers thus far have looked impressive; and in addition we get to see Doctor Who‘s David Tennant on the big screen again. I know there’s a lot of Who fans out there that are anticipating this film simply because of Tennant’s role – and it could potentially be a bit of a springboard for the actor into some future bigger roles.
