Richard Stanley, director of the 1990 sci-fi film "Hardware," will adapt H.P. Lovecraft's 1927 short story "The Colour Out of Space" for SpectreVision.
Titled simply "Color Out of Space," it will be Stanley's first feature since the 1992 horror film "Dust Devil." Casting is under way, with production targeted to begin early next year.
Lovecraft's story revolves around a meteorite that crashes west of Arkham, Massachusetts, draining the life force of everything nearby, and driving animals and people insane. The 1965 horror film "Die, Monster, Die!" was loosely based on "The Colour Out of Space."
Stanley reportedly has been working on the project for several years.
