Nicolas Cage has been set to star in Color Out of Space, a horror film based on terror-master H.P. Lovecraft’s 1927 novella. The film will be directed by South African filmmaker Richard Stanley in his first feature in 20 years. For Cage, it’s a reteam with producer SpectreVision after last year’s hit revenge thriller Mandy. Principal photography on the new project begins next month.

Joely Richardson, Tommy Chong, Elliot Knight, Julian Hilliard and Q’Orianka Kilcher join Cage in the cast of the pic, which in the story centers on the Gardners, a family who moves to a remote New England farmstead to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. It seems to melt into the earth, infecting both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly color, and to the family’s horror they discover the alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches including them.

SpectreVision’s Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood are producing, with Timur Bekbosunov, Johnny Chang, Emma Lee and Peter Wong executive producing for ACE Pictures, which is also financing. Stacy Jorgensen will executive produce for SpectreVision.

“Lovecraft is the dark father of modern horror, and we have been searching for an adaptation that captures the true scope of his cosmic dread for years,” Noah said in a release Wednesday announcing the project. “Richard Stanley — a wizard in his own right — will at long last bring Lovecraft’s humbling power to the screen unfiltered.”

I watched this on the weekend and really enjoyed it. Shit hits the fan so quickly, and everyone does a stellar job of selling the whole "Lovecraftian Madness" aspect of it - being completely sane one second, losing their minds the next, sane again, madness again.. it's actually amazing how seamless the transitions are, back and forth, with each actor. Highly impressed that they pulled off adapting a more modern version of this story and put it to film.

Also - Nic Cage's bonkers acting style fits right in that I kind of want to see him do more HPL films now.

I actually saw this tonight. Entertaining enough with Nic Cage in full Nic Cage mode (the scenes where he's slam dunking veggies in the trash and has a full meltdown in a car were sights to behold). I enjoyed the special effects and the CG. I thought that was the best part of the film honestly along with the cinematography.

Richard Stanley announced at the premiere that he's doing a trilogy of HP Lovecraft adaptations and his next project is Dunwich Horror.
