It seems that Warner Bros. has yet another DC-based property in the works for the big screen. Deadline has exclusively revealed that Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff & D.B. Weiss are working on an adaptation of Vertigo’s Lovecraft.

According to Deadline, Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi will be tackling the script having written projects such as Aeon Flux and Ride Along. Karyn Kusama will serve as an executive producer.

Nothing official is known about the plot as of yet, but apparently the film will be set in the 1920s and ask the question of what if H.P. Lovecraft’s stories were based on actual events. Cthulu on the big screen? We’ll take it.

Benioff and Weiss recently departed working on a Star Wars film project, but still have a deal in place with Netflix. How soon they will be able to get to this project will be the big question mark. Apparently this film was in talks prior to the Netflix deal, so it may take a higher priority for all concerned.

With the growing slate of upcoming DC films, it’s about to be a busy time for DC fans.
