Howard Taking on Lovecraft


Ron Howard is reportedly gearing up to direct an adaptation of The Strange Adventures of HP Lovecraft, the graphic novel from Image Comics created by Mac Carter and Jeff Blitz.

Variety has suggested the project chimed with the current ethos at Universal in that it involves a number of classic horror figures, some of which, notably Wolf Man, will be making a return in the very near future.

I can’t see Howard taking it on and providing much interesting, although that chimes pretty heavily with my feelings on him as a helmer. He just doesn’t have the visual imagination and then necessary skill in conviction to pull it off. You never know though. Hope spring eternal. Yep.
