Cumberbatch Signs For New Thriller

1 min read

Star Trek into Darkness guest star Benedict Cumberbatch has signed on for a role in a “haunted house thriller.”

Cumberbatch would join fellow actors Emma Stone and Charlie Hunnam in Crimson Peak.

Crimson Peak is “set at the turn of the century and it is a Gothic romance with ghosts,” according to Director Guillermo del Toros. “When I use the [Gothic romance] term, I use it not in the Barbara Cartland model but rather in a Bronte fashion. Dark and stormy and wind-swept.”

Penned by Del Toro, Matthew Robbins and Lucinda Coxon, Crimson Peak is expected to begin shooting next February.
