Game Of Thrones Show Creators David Benioff And D.B. Weiss Developing Lovecraft Movie

Author H. P. Lovecraft is know for two things, creating Cthulhu and being wicked racist. The story “The Horror At Red Hook” is one of his most well-known tales and sees Lovecraft describing Aryan civilization as the one thing that stands against “primitive half-ape savagery” of lesser races.

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are set to produce a movie based on Hans Rodionoff’s comic Lovecraft. Writers Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi are set to write the script and have written such projects as Aeon Flux and Ride Along.

Details are sparse but reportedly center around the idea that Lovecraft wasn’t making things up and that all the monsters are real.

Benioff and Weiss recently stepped away from their planned Star Wars trilogy in order to focus on their Netflix deal.
