SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood are producing, with Timur Bekbosunov, Johnny Chang, Emma Lee and Peter Wong executive producing for ACE Pictures, which is also financing. Stacy Jorgensen will executive produce for SpectreVision.
“Lovecraft is the dark father of modern horror, and we have been searching for an adaptation that captures the true scope of his cosmic dread for years,” Noah said in a release announcing the project. “Richard Stanley — a wizard in his own right — will at long last bring Lovecraft’s humbling power to the screen unfiltered.”
Stanley directed cult hits Hardware and Dust Devil and was famously excised from helming the eventual 1996 pic The Island Of Dr. Moreau based on the book of another famed writer, H.G. Wells.
