Del Toro doesn’t get to do AtMoM… mehPosted: March 9, 2011
The interwebs are abuzz with the news that Guillermo Del Toro isn’t getting to do his version of At the Mountains of Madness. I say meh. There are two reasons.
- Tom Cruise had signed on.
- Del Toro was going to do it in 3D
Of the to 3D was the deal breaker and I just wouldn’t have gone to see it if there was no 2D option. I hate 3D films that much.
I think having Cruise onboard would have run the risk of his presence turning the film into a “Cruise” film though I think that if anyone could manage it, it would be Del Toro.
Which is a pity because I think that Del Toro has the ability to make the sort of eery horror that Lovecraft wrote.
But not in 3D. Can this 3D phase please come to an end.
