David Benioff & D.B. Weis, the duo behind the wildly successful Game of Thrones, have set a deal with Warner Bros. to make a yet-to-be titled H.P. Lovecraft horror-thriller inspired by Hans Rodionoff’s graphic novel, Lovecraft. This news comes our way via Deadline.
Thus far, all that’s known about this film is that it’s set in 1920 within the Cthulhu Mythos, a shared fictional universe that originated from the works of Lovecraft and was later continued by writer Richard L. Tierney. The film’s plot will revolve around something to do with the belief that the monsters Lovecraft created were real and the famous author wasn’t simply writing fantasy tales.
Writing the film’s script are Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, who are known for writing 2005’s Æon Flux, including Ride Along and the Karyn Kusama-directed The Invitation and Destroyer. Kusama will serve as executive producer for this project.
That’s all we have for now on this movie, but keep an eye out on Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates going forward!
