Madness is a short novel about an Antarctic expedition made by scholars from Miskatonic University who discover strange, ancient life forms that are unknown to their science. Highly evolved creatures that seem to pre-date humanity. The script is already written, and in a recent interview with Aintitcool Del Toro Said:
“is exactly the movie I would like to do; it would push buttons, and it’s extreme in many areas. It’s a hard R-rated, big production tentpole in the genre of horror. What I love about tentpole horror.”
Despite the fan interest in the film and Del Toro’s clear proven talent for such tentpole flicks, the movie is not in production. However, the script is available to read via Raindance: Download the PDF here. Or read Del Toro’s other film scripts HERE.
