There’s a HP Lovecraft movie coming, folks!

September 25th, 2015 by Marc Comments


OK HP Lovecraft fans, prepare to get excited… there’s a new movie based on his work coming…

Although, it may not exactly b the one you were hoping for.

Richard Stanley, director of Hardware and Dust Devil, will return to directing for the first time since 1992 to do the work of Lovecraft some justice. His chosen book? The Colour Out Of Space…

The story of a meteor that crashes into earth and sends everyone insane, will be written by Stanley and produced by indie horror company SpectreVision.

“H.P. Lovecraft is the undisputed father of literary horror, and yet, bafflingly, there has yet to be a cinematic treatment that captures the dark beauty of the man’s oeuvre,” said SpectreVision cofounder Daniel Noah.

“Richard Stanley’s note perfect adaptation of Color Out of Space represents an epiphany for me — as it no doubt will be for legions of Lovecraft devotees around the world.”

The movie is due to film early next year…

Could this be the first in a troop of Lovecraftian tales? We certainly hope so…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
