Guillermo Del Toro must be impressed with Charlie Hunnam’s work on the upcoming Pacific Rim, as he’s already hoping to reunite with the British Son Of Anarchy actor for his next movie, Crimson Peak, according to Variety.
A few days ago it was revealed that Emma Stone is in early talks to star, although neither acting has signed on the dotted line. De Toro is trying to get the main cast set early, as he doesn’t plan to shoot the movie until early 2014.
No story details have been released for the movie, although Del Toro has previously described it as “A very set-oriented, classical but at the same time modern take on the ghost story. It will allow me to play with the conventions of the genre I know and love, and at the same time subvert the old rules.” He has also compared it to Robert Wise’s The Haunting.
Guillermo del Toro is rewriting the screenplay with Lucinda Coxon, working from an original draft by Matthew Robbins.
