Ron Howard to Spook Lovecraft Fans With Strange Adventures

Strange Adventures” width=”560″/>

Universal Pictures, the home of classic monster movies, recently optioned the Image comic The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft (which hits stores April 8) as a potential directing vehicle for Ron Howard. Creator Mac Carter has said he was inspired by Universal Studios’ tragic monsters when scripting his fictionalized account of Lovecraft’s life. And it’s no surprise that the comic was optioned before it reached stores: Carter originally dreamed up the idea as a movie. He and producer-cover-artist Adam Byrne also claim they based their Lovecraft’s appearance in part on Adrien Brody. The comic brings Lovecraft’s darkest nightmares to life, and pits then against a timid young writer who’s both the cause of these horrors and mankind’s only chance for survival. Strange Adventures is illustrated by the great Tony Salmons (G.I. Joe, Vigilante) and written by Mac Carter.
