Jessica Chastain joins Crimson Peak

Jessica Chastain joins Crimson Peak

Ostensibly out to prove he can pack more stars in his Haunted House movie than, well, Marlon Wayans did his (though, much love to – we all love), Guillermo del Toro has added another A-lister to the thriller’s cast : Jessica Chastain.

According to Variety, the Oscar Nom’d star of “Zero Dark Thirty” joins busy up-and-comer Benedict ‘Khan’ Cumberbatch (“Star Trek Into Darkness”, “Sherlock”), Emma Stone (“Gangster Squad”, “Amazing Spider-Man”) and Charlie Hunnaman (of Del Toro’s “Pacific Rim”) for the Legenday-produced “Crimson Peak”, which Universal will ship out in tins upon completion.

The flick, written by del Toro and Matthew Robins (with the filmmaker and Lucinda Coxon now on a rewrite), is due to begin shooting in Feb 2014.

Chastain had been circling the ‘Jane’ role in a new big-budget “Tarzan” flick, and that still might work out, but she’s still gotta eat in the meantime – hence, saying ‘yes!’ to del Toro’s offer to do spites in a house in need of a good Ghostbustin’.
