Guillermo Del Toro Makes ‘Crimson Peak’ His Next Directorial Feature

Director Guillermo del Toro is reuniting with his Pacific Rim backers Legendary Pictures for a new feature entitled Crimson Peak, which will be his next directorial project.

Guillermo del Toro wrote the script after Pan's Labyrinth and sold it to Universal Pictures. However, the project was placed on the back burner as he began work on Hellboy II: The Golden Army and then the screenplay for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. When Legendary Pictures expressed interest in the script, Universal allowed the filmmaker to move the project over, in exchange for a stake in the film.

Prometheus started filming a while ago - right at the time we were in preproduction on Pacific Rim. The title itself gave me pause - knowing that Alien was heavily influenced by Lovecraft and his novella.

This time, decades later with the budget and place Ridley Scott occupied, I assumed the greek metaphor alluded at the creation aspects of the HPL book. I believe I am right and if so, as a fan, I am delighted to see a new RS science fiction film, but this will probably mark a long pause - if not the demise - of ATMOM.

Guillermo Del Toro Talks ‘At the Mountains of Madness’ and ‘Frankenstein’

The New Yorker wrote an extensive biographical piece on Guillermo del Toro that includes some interviews with the filmmaker where he discusses his upcoming projects At the Mountains of Madness and Frankenstein.

There is also a description of At the Mountains of Madness, the adaptation of the story by H.P. Lovecraft:The Shoggoths had a racecar sheen. "They are pristine," he said. "They are functional. They are not asymmetric. Symmetry is efficiency. And these guys need to be efficient." He wasn't sure yet if the Shoggoth palette should be "pearlescent" or "circulatory"-reds and blues. Since the Shoggoths could mutate into anything, there was no fixed silhouette, but many would feature a "protoplasmic bowl," an abdomen-like area from which new forms could sprout. One maquette was a disorienting twist on classic Lovecraftian form. It looked like a giant octopus head with tentacles jutting from the top and the bottom-a fearful symmetry. "That's my belly in the middle," Guillermo del Toro joked.
