It has been reported that The Amazing Spider-Man actress Emma Stone is in talks to star in the Guillermo del Toro movie Crimson Peak. Emma is an actress who is very much in demand and has become the favourite for the leading female role in the haunted house movie.
Emma is only in the early stages of talks for the movie, so it is not yet official that she will star in the film but she is certainly the favourite. It is also likely that a top actor will win the leading male role, as Crimson Peak will focus as much on romance as it will on the horror.
Guillermo del Toro and Lucinda Coxon are currently re-tweaking the script for Crimson Peak, which was initially penned by Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins. Crimson Peak will be directed by Guillermo del Toro and will be brought to us by Legendary Pictures.
Meanwhile, Emma Stone currently stars alongside Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin and Sean Penn, in the Ruben Fleischer movie Gangster Squad, which was released in the UK on January 10 and in the US on January 11.
Crimson Peak is expected to begin shooting in February 2014.
