Anything that Guillermo Del Toro directs, I’m going to watch it. He’s a master at his craft, and I’m super excited to see what comes about from Pacific Rim later this year. In the meantime, he’s been working on his ultimate haunted house film, Crimson Peak, and today we get a bit of casting news.

Emma Stone and Charlie Hunnam have already been casted as the leads in the flick, but now Star Trek Into Darkness’s, Benedict Cumberbatch, has been added to the mix. Details on the plot are not known from the Del Toro and Matthew Robins script; but I’m sure that whatever character Cumberbatch is playing, will be brilliant.

More details to will emerge on Crimson Peak, stay tuned to DFAT as they come in!
