Hugh Jackman to Tackle Lovecraft?

According to IndieWire, Hugh Jackman has allegedly been offered a role in the upcoming Guillermo del Toro adaptation of “At the Mountains of Madness,” by H. P. Lovecraft. There are a lot of casting rumors floating around this particular project – including both Tom Cruise and James McAvoy being offered parts – and nothing is yet set in stone.

Deadline also says that Cruise is attached to Guillermo del Toro‘s “At the Mountains of Madness,” but we checked with Cruise’s reps and while that might happen eventually too, currently he’s not officially on board that picture either. In fact, everyone seems to be mulling their options there as James McAvoy was offered a role (the same one as Cruise apparently) and neither has decided yet. Perhaps it’s a matter of schedules, because surely everyone wants to work with del Toro and producer James Cameron on that picture. Offers are also allegedly out to Ron Perlman and Hugh Jackman, but again these are just offers. Anyway, del Toro has basically already said his lucky charm Ron Perlman will be on board somewhere—apparently as Ian Larsen) and production sources in Toronto tell us “At the Mountains of Madness” is scheduled to shoot there in the summer.
