Fictional Account of H.P. Lovecraft on the Big Screen

According to this SF Scope story, Ron Howard will direct a movie based on a graphic novel series on H.P. Lovecraft's life. The H.P. Lovecraft of the novel series sounds like a character that H.P. Lovecraft would have created. (No great surprise, of course.) Ron Howard: that's got to be a good sign. I'll go see it. The graphic novel series is entitled, The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft.

Here is a small gallery of pictures from the graphic novel series web site. Their cleverly named Yog Bloggoth blog gives the details of the Universal and Imagine Entertainment deal.

Comic Books Driving Hollywood?

Are comic books now the way for writers to crack open Hollywood's walled garden? This Wired Magazine blog says that comic-based movies saved Hollywood this summer. The article previews some the upcoming movies. However, for a comprehensive list of upcoming films, the Den of Geek is the place to go. They suggest that comic books, rather than speculative scripts is the way to a movie option. Their list is a compelling argument. Um, I've never been much of a comic book fan, but I might see (will see) Sherlock Holmes (2009) and yeah, The Avengers (2011). If it's in a theater near me, then Wonder Woman.

Wikipedia has a list of past comic-based films in the English language. (I checked there hoping hoping hoping that Nancy was not in the list. It wasn't.) If you want a worst-to-best list with nice graphics, then visit Rotten Tomatoes, but you'll have to click till it hurts to see them all.
