Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak has added Tom Hiddleston (Thor, The Avengers) to its cast in the wake of Benedict Cumberbatch’s departure. The film, which is set to begin shooting in January 2014, also includes Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam.
The film is described as a gothic ghost tale.
Del Toro told us: “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.”
