Benedict Cumberbatch has exited Crimson Peak, the Legendary horror movie being directed by Guillermo del Toro. No reason for his departure was given although sources say his exit is not due to another project.
Charlie Hunnam, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska remain on board to star in the four-hander gothic horror story that centers on a woman who discovers that her husband might not be who he appears to be.
Peak is scheduled to shoot in January and the exit at this early stage gives del Toro plenty of time to find a replacement.
That’s sad, I was looking forward to see him and Jessica working together. Remembering Emma Stone dropped the project as well (they cast Mia for the part). The reports are from The Hollywood Reporter.
