Variety is reporting that Universal and Imagine are looking towards comic book company Image with an eye on bringing “The Strange Adventures of H.P. Lovecraft” to the big screen. The studio has already bought the rights for the movie and rumor is that none other than Ron Howard will be directing the Lovecraft adventure.

Created by Mac Carter and Jeff Blitz, book borrows elements from Lovecraft’s life, such as his family’s struggle with mental illness and his own bouts with writer’s block, and transforms the young writer’s darkest nightmares into reality when he comes across a book that puts a curse on him and lets the evils he conjures up loose on the world.
