Ron Howard Might Direct The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft

Universal and Imagine Entertainment are gearing up for The Strange Adventures of HP Lovecraft.

The studio has bought the film rights to Image Comics’ graphic novel, and Ron Howard may be directing the 'strange' classic horror film.

The graphic novel is loosely based on the life of influential American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. In the graphic novel Lovecraft is a struggling writer until he discovers an ancient book.

The book curses him so that his nightmares become real and ravage the world. He is the only man who can fight the madness he has inadvertently created.

Lovecraft, who died in 1937, is considered one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century, so who better to direct the movie than one of the most influential directors of the 21st century?

You can read more about the graphic novel on www.lovecraftcomic.com; it will be published on April 8th.
