The HP Lovecraft Historical Society are putting together a film of Lovecraft’s most famous tale, “The Call of Cthulhu.”
They’ve put up a nifty trailer for the project, done to look like a 1930s film, on their site.
Yet again, I find myself wanting to make a movie.
In related news, it occurred to me earlier this week that given the fact that Lovecraft’s work is in the public domain, and the proliferation of horror rules for the D20 system released as Open Content under the OGL, I could easily capitalize on the fact that Chaosium has (stupidly) chosen to abandon all support of the D20 version of the Call of Cthulhu RPG, by producing my own material under the title Lovecraft D20. Possibly worth doing. I shall think upon it.
Oh, and be sure to check out the music that I posted in the last entry. It didn’t generate as many comments as I expected…I suspect because of the time I posted it, which meant that by the time most of you read your LJ “Friends” pages, it had been bumped by various Quizillas and Memes.
Either that, or you thought it was all crap, and you’re just being polite.
