Jessica Chastin has joined the A-list cast for Guillermo del Toro’s next horror pic “Crimson Peak”. Chastin joins Emma Stone, Charlie Hunnam and Benedict Cuberbatch.
The Mexican director has described the fright-flick as “a very set-oriented, classical but at the same time a modern take on the ghost story.” The film is set to begin shooting in early 2014. Legendary Pictures will produce and helped finance the project.
Del Toro wrote the gothic horror story that centers on a woman who discovers that her husband might not be whom he appears to be. The horror genre is what Del Toro is most known for. He garnered an Oscar nomination for ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ and has won critic acclaim for such films as ‘Hellboy’ and ‘The Devil’s Backbone.’
