underway the games that del Toro is planning on making are years away from being playable. The anticipation may be worth the wait as del Toro's creativity shine in making monsters and the worlds they live in engaging. Del Toro's first game to be looking forward will be a horror game with less inclination to the Resident's Evil and hopefuly more Silent Hill(2) and Eternal Darkness. The director does know how to please his audience, "It's truly a strange, geeky mix. It's a Lovecraftian thing. Let's leave it at that."

the movie he is penned to direct is the story of 'At The Mountains of Madness'.
 
The game will most likely be based on that too, so probably won't have much of the Cthulu mythos in it.

makes sense given how often THQ does games based on movies

Exciting, but is likely to be either a complete bust or a higher budget version of Amnesia - only set in the Antartic. Still, I do look forward to seeing a realisation of the Elder Things; maybe even Yog-Sothoth, if they decided to that blatant about it.

If the game were going to be a tie-in, why not say that? Plus if it *were* a tie-in it would be weird to describe it as 'Lovecraftian' when it was straight up Lovecraft.
