One might think that Guillermo del Toro is taking a little break now after the massive undertaking that was Pacific Rim, but one would be mistaken. Del Toro is currently in Toronto hard at work on directing the pilot for the upcoming FX series The Strain, but he’s also busy prepping his next feature film Crimson Peak, which starts principal photography in February. The film is described as a “classical gothic romance ghost story” that stars Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam, and del Toro called it his first adult movie in the English language. Other than that, though, very little is known about the film.
Chastain was recently in Toronto where she had a full body cast made for Crimson Peak, and she has now shared images of the process on her Facebook with guest appearances by Del Toro and Chastain’s young Mama co-star. It’s not incredibly illuminating, but it does beg the question why would Chastain’s character need a prosthetic mold? Curious. Very curious. Hit the jump to check out the images.
