MTV recently spoke with Guillermo del Toro who confirmed rumors about Ron Perlman possibly co-starring in At the Mountains of Madness. Here is what Guillermo del Toro had to say:

"All I can tell you is if Ron Perlman is free, he will be in," del Toro told us. "I wrote a part for him. He read it and if everything falls in place, Ron Perlman has a role in it written specifically for him." RELATED: Guillermo Del Toro Will Fight to His Grave to Get At the Mountains of Madness Made

"Ron plays Larson, the sort of dog guy, the guy that cares for the dogs and the sled - the part of the expedition that is dog sleds," he explained. "It's a fantastic character. I really love him. He's sort of a pragmatic guy, doesn't care about science or the mythology or the cosmology. He just is a hard-boiled Nordic man, and it is written specifically for him."

At the Mountains of Madness is an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's Antarctica-based horror tale that Guillermo del Toro will direct with an assist from producer James Cameron.

Guillermo del Toro is currently in pre-production on the film.

No production date has been set.
