Guillermo del Toro’s gothic thriller Crimson Peak begins shooting February 2014 once the director has wrapped work on “The Strain” for FX, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska are set to star.
According to the trade, an April 2015 release month is being eyed for the film. Legendary Pictures is shepherding the production.
When ShockTillYouDrop.com spoke to Del Toro earlier this year, he said:
“Crimson Peak is a much, much, much smaller movie, completely character-driven. It’s an adult movie, an R-rated movie, pretty adult. Shockingly different from anything I’ve done in the English language. Normally, when I go to do a movie in America for the spectacle and younger audience, for Blade or whatever. This movie’s tone is scary and it’s the first time I get to do a movie more akin to what I do in the Spanish movies.”
