Althought it has long been talked about, we may never get to see Guillermo del Toro's vision of the H.P. Lovecraft tale AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS. That's too bad as the fans are behind it and del Toro himself recently shared that he's ready to try to get the film moving again, even though it has fought an uphill battle from the beginning.
We've known that del Toro‘s early development process involves lots of notes and sketches, even seeing hints of his sketchbooks thanks to various DVD releases and other behind the scenes peeks at his process over the years. Now one great collection of his sketches has been assembled, and it features elements for just about everything, from the HELLBOY movies, BLADE II, THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE and even PACIFIC RIM. But the coolest thing we've seen is the sketches del Toro worked up for AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS, and you can peep them below.
You can take a look at more of del Toro's sketches HERE. In the meantime, we can all keep praying to the Movie Gods (or even Cthulu himself) that AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS makes it in front of the camera soon.
