A new casting call sheet for Crimson Peak revealed a little bit more about the movie plot details:
The film is a haunting gothic horror story directed by Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Hellboy” series, “Pacific Rim”), from a screenplay by Matthew Robbins, del Toro and Lucinda Coxon, starring Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”), Tom Hiddleston (“The Avengers”), Jessica Chastain (“Mama”), Charlie Hunnam (“Pacific Rim”) and Jim Beaver (TV’s “Deadwood). The film is produced by Legendary Pictures’ Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni, as well as del Toro and producer Callum Greene. Legendary Pictures’ Jillian Share serves as the film’s executive producer.
The film is the story of a young aspiring author (Wasikowska) who, in the aftermath of a family tragedy, is torn between love for her childhood friend (Hunnam) and the temptation of a mysterious outsider (Hiddleston). Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to rural England to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers.
The film will be released by Universal in IMAX on Friday, October 16, 2015.
