Nicolas Cage meets H.P. Lovecraft this year as director Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devil) makes his return with Color Out of Space, an adaptation of Lovecraft’s 1927 short story, and a first look image has been released to coincide with the news that the film is set to premiere during the Midnight Madness line-up at next month’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Color Out of Space is described as “a story of cosmic terror about The Gardners, a family who moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century. They are busy adapting to their new life when a meteorite crashes into their front yard. The mysterious aerolite seems to melt into the earth, infecting both the land and the properties of space-time with a strange, otherworldly color. To their horror, the Gardner family discover that this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches…including them.”
Color Out of Space sees Nicolas Cage starring alongside Joely Richardson (Red Sparrow), Tommy Chong (Up in Smoke), Elliot Knight (Titans), Julian Hilliard (The Haunting of Hill House) and Q’Orianka Kilcher (The Alienist).
