MOUNTAINS Dead, PACIFIC RIM on the Horizon? - Guillermo del Toro Speaks

As we reported yesterday, Guillermo del Toro’s much anticipated at THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS was shut down, killed, kaput, bummersville. In spite of of having James Cameron involved as well as Tom Cruise, the $150 million production estimate and an R rating was just too much for the studio to handle. I guess Cruise should have made a call into his alien friends up in his own mountain of madness!...


Follow up:


Deadline sat down with the man himself to get some answers;

On whether the reported $500 million in profit Universal would need to recoup their investment is what shut down the movie:

"As far as the movie grossing that much, obviously I’m not impartial, but I have to believe that with 3D, Tom Cruise, Jim Cameron, the scope of Lovecraft’s novel that is one his best regarded and most widely known works, I would venture that it could absolutely have been done. I think the R should be worn like a badge of merit in promoting the movie. To say, this is not a gory movie, not a movie full of profanity or violence, but it’s a really intense movie. It’s all what you do with what you’re given. I had to believe right along that they were betting as much as I was. I was betting essentially everything I had, in terms of leverage, betting nine months of development when I was on The Hobbit. This was for me a do or die movie."


On whether or not there's hope for MADNESS down the road:

"I have learned in the last few years that God laughs as we make plans. The beauty of it is, in the last few days, I spoke to Tom, who has been incredibly supportive and who said, ‘Let’s keep going, let’s make this movie down the road.’ He’s definitely that interested and that happy where we were creatively. So we have good legs to travel on, if the time and the opportunity present itself. But we’re going to fight for that to happen."

But never fear. Guillermo is hard at work on another “monster” movie titled PACIFIC RIM! In the same interview, del Toro briefly spoke about the project;

"I can only say I was very happy to be able to develop it under the radar in many ways. People got it confused with the Godzilla movie a few months ago but we cleared that up. I can say the scope and imagination that have been outlined in it are absolutely appealing to me. I cannot say more, it’s not the time."

Del Toro hopes to be behind the camera in September with a projected release date of 2013. We’ll of course bring you the news as we get it. Boy, what a difference a day makes!

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But
he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I
can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
