    Universal refused to greenlight it as an R-rated movie, and Del Toro refused to make it PG-13, so he and James Cameron are currently working to get Fox to pick it up.

    I wonder, has anyone ever asked Del Toro why At The Mountains Of Madness has to be R-rated? It has very little gore, no nudity and no f-words that I can remember ...

    Probably for tone- there'll be autopsy scenes on people, penguins and aliens... Plus there's whole issue of what shoggoths actually would do, visually (i.e. bite people's - and penguins' - heads off) and what the mutant penguins would do...

    Most of the Tarzan films were only loosely based on the character. The ones that were adapted from the novels were mostly the silent ones made in the teens and twenties. The ones I recall right off were (film title first, then the name of the novel on which the film was based):

    Tarzan of the Apes -- from the first half of the original novel "Tarzan of the Apes."
    The Romance of Tarzan -- based on the second half of the novel "Tarzan of the Apes"
    The Revenger of Tarzan -- from the novel "The Return of Tarzan"
    The Son of Tarzan -- from the novel of the same name
    Adventures of Tarzan -- from the novels "The Return of Tarzan" and parts of "Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar"
    Tarzan and the Golden Lion -- from the novel of the same name
    Tarzan the Tiger -- from "Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar"

    In the sound era:

    Greystoke -- from the novel "Tarzan of the Apes"
    And Disney's "Tarzan" from the novel "Tarzan of the Apes"

    later on I'll put the rest of his books up for those who love burroughs.
    all so coming up next is conan reading list. and it seems there is all ready a new novalistation of the new movie ready for pre-order.

    and here is the venus series:

    Pirates of venus
    lost on venus

    I assume you mean a remake of the movie, not the novel. What would you have done differently from the McClure-Cushing movie (and who can you envision playing Dian The Beautiful other than Caroline Munro)?

    How about a remake of "The Land that Time Forget"? I thought Moorcock did a decent screenplay(probably the closest adaptation of an ERB book), but was surprised that he killed off the protagonist of the 3rd Caspak novel.

    One of my favorite Tarzan novels. I liked how ERB made fun of the Tarzan movies by having an American GI ask if John Clayton was Johnny Weissmuller.

    Right. ERB did write Skeleton Men from Jupiter. only two 'chapters' of the story were ever published though. Burroughs never did finish it.

    Tarzan fans might want to add Tarzan Alive by Philip Jose Farmer* to thie reading list. It approaches the character of Tarzan as if he was an actual person and the novels were fictionalized accounts of his life. Pretty interesting stuff.

    (*Farmer also gave the character of Doc Savage the same treatment.)

    Just checked out the trailer for the movie, and it is a shame it never came out in the US, it looks pretty cool. Why hasn't it been picked up for a US release, it looks to me like the kind of thing that would make a great summer movie.

    I found the trailer I am looking forward to reading the books or book on solomon kane.
    I don't know how to do the links but if someone can do a link to trailer or clips from the books and movies of these three authors that would be fantastic.
