At the Mountains of Madness, Guillermo del Toro’s for some time delayed film that most fans assumed could never occur, is not totally dead yet. As a matter of fact, the movie producer is clearly considering the possibility of releasing it as a stop-movement animated feature instead. As per IndieWire, del Toro has as of late chatted with VFX veteran Phil Tippett about the possibility of adjusting the H.P Lovecraft story into the style of his new Netflix Pinocchio movie.
To make that a reality, del Toro would have to spend years on it, and he would require the support of a the studio upside. That’s easier for Pinocchio, which has been retold numerous times, and has been profitable in several of those outings, than for something more specialty like At the Mountains of Madness, yet it positively is not impossible. Following the success of del Toro’s Bureau of Curiosities on Netflix, on the off chance that Pinocchio turns out to be a hit, Netflix would be his obvious starting point.
“I said it would be ideal to do ‘Mountains of Madness’ as stop-movement,” he said. “You watch the animation in a more rapturous manner than true to life. It’s almost an entrancing demonstration, and the relationship to the story becomes more intimate in that manner.”
At the Mountains of Madness has been in and out of improvement a couple of times since 2011, when it had its most promising start. Initially set to star Tom Cruise, the undertaking was stopped when Universal would have rather not spent that sort of cash on an adults-only movie.

It centers on a 1930s undertaking to Antarctica, in which a gathering of explorers drove by a scientist experience the remnants of an old civilization.
