Color Out of Space: First look photo from Nic Cage’s H.P. Lovecraft adaptation released
A first look photo from Nicolas Cage’s upcoming Color Out of Space film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Color Out of Space has been released. Written and directed by Richard Stanley (Hardware, The Island of Dr. Moreau), you can check out the full photo now in the gallery below (via Birth.Movies.Death).
The Color Out of Space is described as a story of cosmic terror about The Gardners, a family who moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. The mysterious aerolite seems to melt into the earth, infecting both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly color. To their horror, the Gardner family discover that this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches … including them.
The movie also stars Joely Richardson (Red Sparrow), Madeleine Arthur (Big Eyes), Brendan Meyer (The OA), Tommy Chong (After Hours), Elliot Knight (Titans), Julian Hilliard (The Haunting of Hill House) and Q’Orianka Kilcher (The Alienist).
Three years have already past since the announcement of SpectreVision’s involvement in the adaptation of Lovecraft’s short story. The film will be director Stanley’s comeback film since his dismissal from the 1996 H.G. Wells adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau, as chronicled in the brutal documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Doctor Moreau.
