This should be an inneresting change of pace for him!
Tom Cruise has reportedly signed to star in the Guillermo del Toro directed horror film At The Mountains of Madness, which is based on the H.P. Lovecraft novel of the same name!
The story allegedly focus on a geologist named William Dyer, who, during a expedition to Antarctica, discovers the fossils of an previously unheard of race of creatures! We have a feeling that hilarity does not ensue.
Frequent del Toro collaborator Ron Pearlman is also in talks to appear in the film as a "dog-sled guy."
Nice! Being vaguely familiar with Lovecraft's work and knowing what del Toro is capable of, we're pretty sure that this one is going to be all kinds of effed up and SCARY!
Which is an exciting prospect!
What do U think?? Will U go see At The Mountains of Madness?
