    Default Tom Cruise is Top Choice for Guillermo Del Toro's "At the Mountains of Madness"

    Tom Cruise is Top Choice for Guillermo Del Toro's "At the Mountains of Madness"

    Posted: February 4th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff

    Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy) has teamed with his friend James Cameron (Avatar) to direct his passion project "At the Mountains of Madness," based on a book by HP Lovecraft.

    Back in September, Universal Pictures wanted James McAvoy (Wanted) or Chris Pine (Star Trek) to play the lead, but Del Toro wanted Tom Cruise. Now in an interview with MTV, Cameron revealed that everyone is working to get a deal with Cruise.

    "Tom does want to do the picture," said Cameron, who is producing the 3D film. "I don't think we have a deal with him yet, but we're hoping to get that closed soon. Guillermo is madly working on a new draft of the script. Hopefully we'll be shooting by June or July."

    The word "madness" has me thinking this might be typecasting.

    Is it still typecasting if it's true?

    Still, at least with Tiny Tom in the movie they can save a fortune on some of the location shoots. They can just spinkle some powdered sugar on top of molehills and have Tom stand nearby. Ta-da! Instant mountain scenery.

    He's box office poison by now, though. But, I still kind of like Tom Cruise, even if he's a nut. And I do like Guillermo Del Toro.
