At The Mountains Of Madness (Lovecraft): Guillermo Del Toro recently spoke to Fangoria about the adaptation that he and his partner, Matthew Robbins, are working on as they simultaneously work on Hellboy:
"There's a huge aspect of Lovecraft that has never been captured on film. Never," del Toro explains. "What we're doing, is we're trying to preserveif you read the book, the book is 90 percent atmosphere. It's not a book about a concrete act and there's not an arc, there's not an escalation. There's no structure really, so what we're doing is we're trying to capture the Lovecraft sensibility and feeling, but putting in the coolest fucking monsters ever committed to film."
"That's one thingyou will not seem them that clearly for most of the movie, but you will get glimpses," del Toro enthuses. "The whole movie, the main plot takes place during an Arctic storm, so when they step out of their little tents, it's limbo. It's white. And something comes out of the white and grabs them. There's a great scene where a guy falls under the ice and he's drowning, but the creatures are above. So, you never get a three hundred and sixty-degree panorama of the creature, but you get a lot of the feeling."

Doggett: A scooper over at Dark Horizons is reporting some interesting news on Robert Patrick's latest endeavors. Here's what he had to say:
"Cable channel FX has picked him for the lead in their new pilot about a Los Angeles hustler who turns FBI informant when they catch him in a sting operation. On top of that, Patrick is apparently interested in reprising his role of X File's John Doggett for a stand-alone TV movie for Fox.
