Wow. Guillermo Del Toro, director of Pan’s Labyrinth and the Hellboy movies, over the next nine years is reportedly slated to make movies based on all of the following classics:
•Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness”
When will nerds find time to see regular nerd movies based on crappy source material, like Twilight? But he’s sort of got that niche covered too — because in his spare time, he’s apparently writing a vampire novel trilogy.
How long before people start looking back upon Mimic and seeing the early signs of genius in it — much as all those Spider-Man fans should with Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead movies and the underrated The Quick and the Dead?
But speaking of superheroes, what I really wish Del Toro’d adapt is Marvel’s sorcerer supreme, Doctor Strange. Right?
Unless “nerd” has been redefined as “14-year-old Christian girl” or “born-again mom,” I’m not sure that “Twilight” should really count as a nerd movie. It’s going for a very different demographic.
