'Game of Thrones' Creators Developing 'Lovecraft' Film For DC Comics

This will be the film adaptation of the graphic novel of the same name and will be made under the Warner Bros. banner

The Game of Thrones creators, ages 48 and 49, respectively, are teaming up with Warner Bros. for the thriller film, Deadline reports. The project of Benioff and Weiss seems to be able to attack the man himself, wondering if all the dreams of unusual and flaky fever that he has exploded in the American canon could have been real, and situating it in an appropriate 1920s setting at the time.

Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have found their next project.

According to the Hollywood trade, this new movie adaptation will not use Rodionoff's script itself but the OGN will be adapted back to screenplay form by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi.

A fascinating but disturbing study of one of America's greatest horror writers, the intense LOVECRAFT examines the freakish life of author and recluse, Howard Phillips Lovecraft. And "The Invitation" director Karyn Kusama will serve as an executive producer on the project. Or as the synopsis for the graphic novel asks: "What if the monsters he created are real?" While the exact plot may be under wraps for now, it's been revealed that the film will be set in 1920 within the Chthulu mythos.


Benioff and Weiss are trading a universe far, far away for some eldritch horror.

Transforming George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" fantasy novels into one of HBO's biggest and most successful shows should have set David Benioff and D.B. The duo blamed their commitment to their extensive Netflix deal for their departure, but with the two of them signing on to develop a feature film for Warner Bros., that is apparently not the case.

It sounds like it's still very early days for the Lovecraft movie from Weiss and Benioff.
