SpectreVision Has Got This
Coming Soon is reporting that there’s a Lovecraft trilogy of films being worked on by SpectreVision, the production team overseen by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller.
It was only last week, Wood was waxing lyrical about SpectreVision’s plans to reboot A Nightmare On Elm Street.
It’s planning to have Color Out Of Space, directed by Richard Stanley, as the first movie in this trilogy. The team is hoping to move forward with more Lovecraft stories after that, with The Dunwich Horror to follow next.
Co-producer Noah said –
“Lovecraft is possibly the most adapted horror author ever,”
“But there’s really never been a totally faithful adaptation of any of his works. I think there are a few that are sort of close. One of them is the German version of Color Out Of Space that came out a few years ago. Stuart Gordon’s films are wonderful, but they are more Stuart Gordon than they are Lovecraft. We had been hellbent on finding the Lovecraft adaptation that truly captured cosmic dread without the camp. When we encountered Richard Stanley’s script, I remember texting Elijah after I read the first page and said, ‘This is it. We found it.’”
“When you see this film, you’ll see that there are all kinds of little references that are allusions to other Lovecraft stories.”
Color Out Of Space stars Nicholas Cage, Joely Richardson, Brendan Meyer, Q’orianka Kilcher, and Tommy Chong, and opens on January 24th.
