The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft

Ron Howard is set to bring The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft to the silver screen.

Yet another indie graphic novel is headed to the big screen. Image Comics' The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft, created by Mac Carter and Jeff Blitz, is being developed for Ron Howard to direct at Universal. The fictionalized tale borrows elements from Lovecraft's life, such as his own bouts with writer's block, and transforms his darkest nightmares into reality when he comes across a book that puts a curse on him and lets the evils he conjures up loose on the world. Universal picked this up because its take on classic horror fits in well with their monster movies like Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy and the Wolf Man.

I have a feeling that young lad ate some bad calamari once upon a time. How else to explain the many squid-derived baddies in his work?
