A few days ago, Benedict Cumberbatch dropped out of Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming Crimson Peak. The director and Legendary Pictures have moved fast to find a replacement – even though it doesn’t start shooting until next February – as Tom Hiddleston has stepped in to the vacant role.
Charlie Hunnam, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska are also attached to star in this haunted house thriller, although no specific story or character details have been revealed at this time. Del Toro has promised it will be scary and very different from any of his English-language films.
Guillermo will directing from a screenplay he is currently rewriting with Lucinda Coxon, based on an original draft the director co-wrote with Matthew Robbins.
