Guillermo del Toro Talks Pacific Rim 2 and Not Giving Up on At The Mountains of Madness - Dread Central
"I said to [Legendary Pictures], [At the Mountains of Madness] is the movie that I would really love to do one day, and it’s still expensive," he admitted. "I think that now, with the way I’ve seen PG-13 become more and more flexible, I think I could do it PG-13 now, so I’m going to explore it with [Legendary], to be as horrifying as I can, but to not be quite as graphic."
"There’s basically one or two scenes in the book that people don’t remember that are pretty graphic. Namely, for example, the human autopsy that the aliens do, which is a very shocking moment. But I think I can find ways of doing it. We’ll see. It’s certainly a possibility in the future. Legendary was very close to doing it at one point so I know they love the screenplay. So we’ll see. Hopefully it’ll happen. It’s certainly one of the movies I would love to do."
Del Toro continues, "I think there’s a really strong possibility we can do it at Legendary because now they are at Universal, and Universal, you may remember, almost greenlit the movie. The fact that we now have two studios together that love the material, and if they support each other, they are risking a lot less. It would be great to do it, but I’ve understood that you don’t plan your career; it just happens."

Crimson Peak Comic-Con Panel Recap: First Footage Revealed
Apparently when GDT did the panel for Book of Life the crowd was chanting Hellboy 3. So with Legendary's Thomas Tull backstage, he asked the crowd to react to HB3and At the Mountains of Madness. Well, it was a helthy roar for Mountains...but the room ERUPTED for HB3. TTull came out later and said to a backstage Guillermo, 'When you are done with Pac 3 we will talk.'
I expect that HB3 may actually get done and that makes me VERY happy.
Oh the footage for Crimson Peak was very nice. An r-rated Harlequin type romance(with ghosts) set in a fully built Victorian mansion. As GDT put it...it's got some really cool ghosts and some really ****ed up people, or something like that.
