    There's no chance.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    I can't believe it's taken this long! Cthulhu stories are THE best!

    Has everyone watched Johnathan Strange and Mr Norrell on Netflix? Based on a good book and well done fantasy series.

    Dagon (2001) wasn't bad.

    Yeah that is one of my favourites too.
    I think The Shadow Over Innsmouth is worth a read too, and might be filmable...

    I think Charles Stross’s Laundry series books (updating Lovecraft to a modern setting) would be worth filing too.

    Mandy was insane.


    If this is anywhere near as interesting it'll be a great piece of Cinema.


    If you want to watch Bond rehash movies....there's already 100 of those produced a year for ya, lol. Cage is a great choice.

    Got to see The Color Out of Space at the Lovecraft film festival in Portland last October. It was . . . OK. Don't get your hopes up too high. Like most attempts to put Lovecraft on the big screen, it starts well but falls into typical Hollywood routines by the end.

    Agreed. It's difficult to get onscreen the sense of the fearful and dark underlying dread that permeates Lovecraft's writing. But...always willing to see what has been achieved with todays tremendous technology in artworks. ;):cool:

    It was good but not great. Nothing at all wrong with it, but it is hard for any series to capture the richness of that particular book.

    I could not care less about what is or is not woke or PC, but as a huge fan of the Foundation Series I fail to see how changing the sex and race of characters -- living tens of thousands of years in the future -- will make one lick of difference to that story. If anything, I would expect humans living across the galaxy to be far more mixed and blended than anything currently existing on Earth. Pretty weak tea my friend.

    My personal angst about the series is that Apple is making it. I will be very mad if they mangle what I consider to be Asimov's masterpiece.

    Denis Villeneuve is also on notice -- don't mess up Dune!

    Still wanting a true Cthulhu movie directed by John Carpenter.

    I really liked Dagon.
