News just in. James Cameron has reportedly stepped into the uncertainly over Guillermo del Toro’s big-budget film adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness. Presumably carrying a sack-load of profits from Avatar. At the Mountains of Madness is now apparently set to be a full-blown stereo-3D adaptation, directed by del Toro and produced by Cameron. Let’s hope Cameron doesn’t request that the story be updated to the modern day, so they can tediously wheel in teen-friendly things like helicopters firing missiles, as we saw in the mess that was Avatar. I want a beautifully restrained 1930s valve-punk adaptation, full of incredible Sky Captain-like machines.

The full exclusive story has just been broken by Deadline.
