Emma Stone Departs Guillermo del Toro’s CRIMSON PEAK; Mia Wasikowska in Talks to Star

     June 5, 2013


After Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man) departed Guillermo del Toro’s haunted house story Crimson Peak last month, Mia Wasikowska (Stoker) is now in talks to replace her.  Stone cited scheduling issues for her departure from the film, which also stars Jessica Chastain, Benedict Cumberbatch and Charlie Hunnam.  If Wasikowska’s own schedule works out, she would play “a young author named Edith Cushing who discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be,” according to The Wrap.  Hunnam will play another lead while Cumberbatch and Chastain star as aristocratic siblings.  Crimson Peak is expected to begin production early next year.

    Del Toro recently said this is going to be R-rated with gothic romance and kinky stuff in the mix. I bet there’s incest going on with Cumberbatch’s and Chastain’s characters.

      Does incest fall under the ‘kink’ category?

        I don’t know actually. But I’m talking about the gothic romance themes when I mentioned that. They usually involve twisted and forbidden love so incest is likely. Or necrophilia. But yeah, incest was the first thing that came to mind.

    Much better choice of actress. More mysterious. Wasikowska was great in Stoker.
