The project first announced last month, Guillermo del Toro has plans to make his next film the ghost story Crimson Peak. Today, Variety brings word that Emma Stone is in talks to headline.
Written by Del Toro, Matthew Robbins and Lucinda Coxon, Crimson Peak is said to be classic ghost story that also makes use of modern conventions.
Stone, who stars in the just-released Gangster Squad, will soon begin production on Marc Webb’s sequel to last summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man.
A February 2014 production start is being planned, allowing for Del Toro to head to the small screen for the pilot of “The Strain,” based on his own book series with Chuck Hogan.
