According to the Hollywood Reporter, Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain is just the latest addition to the cast of luminaries, which includes Emma Stone, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Charlie Hunnam.
This isn't the first time the "Zero Dark Thirty" star has worked with del Toro; she headlined the surprise hit "Mama," a supernatural thriller that he produced. In fact, del Toro's almost becoming Christopher Nolan-like in casting actors in multiple films. Hunnam is also starring in his summer sci-fi robot spectacle, "Pacific Rim."
"Crimson Peak" is a "ghost story and gothic romance," del Toro told Total Film. The movie revolves around a woman who discovers her husband isn't who she thought he was.
"It's at the turn of the century and half of the movie takes place in America, and the other half takes place in a crumbling mansion in Cumbria ... The first half is a love story, then that love story turns darker."
If all goes as planned, "Crimson Peak" will start filming in early 2014. Should we mark our calendars for next Halloween?
