Mia Wasikowska To Replace Emma Stone In Del Toro’s CRIMSON PEAK
It’s a very set-oriented, classical but at the same time modern, take on the ghost story. It will allow me to play with the conventions of the genre I know and love, and at the same time subvert the old rules.Del Toro and Lucinda Coxon are rewriting a script del Toro and Matthew Robins originally penned, and beside Wasikowska, the pic will also star Charlie Hunnam, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jessica Chastain. Legendary will produce and be a participating financing partner on the movie, with Universal Pictures retaining an option to finance at a later date. Plans are for filming to begin in February 2014, so I guess we’ll soon have more updates to share. Let us know what you think about Wasikowska and her involvement in the whole thing & stay tuned for more on Crimson Peak!
