Being that he’s got the ‘peak’ of the litter right now, Benedict Cumberbatch has decided to exit the new Guillermo del Toro flick “Crimson Peak”. All Deadline knows is that it’s not because of scheduling conflicts. It’s likely also not because Cumberbatch wants to reserve time to promote the forthcoming “Star Trek Into Darkness” DVD. Maybe the dude’s simply received a better offer? Aren’t they prepping that “Mortal Instruments” sequel about now?
But back to “Crimson Peak”. The film still has Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastaina and Charlie Hunnam attached, but Emmma Stone, like Cumberbatch, also dropped out a couple of months back. This being the second drop-out would suggest this daffodil doesn’t smell as good as it looks.
