Emma Stone is no longer attached to the project.

Crimson Peak is Guillermo del Toro's (Pacific Rim) next motion picture. The script is already completed, but details haven't made it out in the press yet. All we know is that it's going to be 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,"[1] says the Pacific Rim director.

A vague plot description has been revealed by THR:
"The gothic horror story centers on a woman who discovers that her husband might not be who he appears to be."

Since it's Guillermo del Toro we are talking about, the film's probably going to be a hit. So we decided to follow the casting updates and post them all here. Read below to see who's been added to Crimson Peak so far:

  • Charlie Hunnam 
(Awaiting character details)
  • Benedict Cumberbatch 
(Awaiting character details)
  • Jessica Chastain
