Ron Howard wants to show you some “Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft!!”

Posted on 26 March 2009 by Quaid

Universal has bought the rights to Image Comics upcoming graphic novel “The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft,” citing that the horror property would fit in well with their tradition of creating classic movie horror monsters.  

cthulhuThe book, created by Mac Carter and Jeff Blitz, mixes factual elements of the esteemed horror writer’s life with the writer’s fantastic stories about monsters, gods, and ancient cults.

Carter will write the script.  Both Carter and Blitz will serve as executive producers.

Most interestingly, Imagine’s Brian Grazer and Ron ”The DaVinci Code” Howard are producers.  No word on if there is any chance of Howard directing this.  I hope they get someone more in-tune with the source material, personally.

This story comes from Variety.
