Collider is reporting that filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, that kid in a candy store now that he’s free from “The Hobbit,” will take a stab at a pet project, “At the Mountains of Madness”.

It’s an H.P. Lovecraft tale of supernatural horror set in the Antarctic.

And that the two stars he’s considering for this project are James McAvoy, whom the producing studio wants, and Tom Cruise, whom Del Toro has entertained the idea of working with for an earlier gig.

James Cameron will produce, it’ll be in 3D, and will take forever to shoot and cut and trick out with effects. Who has more time on his hands, Tom Cruise or James McAvoy? I say Tommy boy.
