Mia Wasikowska Climbs Crimson Peak While Emma Stone Falls Off
Some quick casting news is coming in for Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak. The Wrap reports that Emma Stone has left the project and taking her place could be Stoker's Mia Wasikowska.
Wasikowska is being eyed to play a young author named Edith Cushing, who discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be. Jessica Chastain also stars alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Charlie Hunnam. Plot details are unknown as del Toro and Lucinda Coxon work through a rewrite on a script del Toro and Matthew Robins originally penned.
Del Toro previously described the film as “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.”
Legendary will produce and be a participating financing partner on the movie, with Universal Pictures retaining an option to finance at a later date.
Look for more hopefully soon!
