Alice in Wonderland and Stoker‘s Mia Wasikowska, pictured above, is in talks with Legendary Pictures to star in Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror movie Crimson Peak, TheWrap has learned.

Wasikowska plans to take over the role that Emma Stone had originally been attached to but was forced to depart last month due to a scheduling issue.

Wasikowska is being eyed to play a young author named Edith Cushing who discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Jessica Chastain, below, will co-star as siblings from an aristocratic family, while del Toro’s Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam also has a lead role in the movie.

Del Toro wrote the haunted house thriller with Matthew Robbins and Lucinda Coxon. Legendary will produce and serve as one of the movie’s main financing partners, while Universal has retained an option to co-finance at a later date. Production will begin early next year.

    I hate the fact that Emma Stone will not be able to be in the movie because I do love her but if anyone can do justice to this role it is Mia because she was great in “Stoker”. I also love your pictures Mr. Disgusting keep up the good work.

      Camilla, YES!! i just watched STOKER last night and it’s FUCKING AWESOME!!! and most definitely Mia was superb in it (actually all 3 leads including Nicole Kidman were excellent). this Del Toro movie’s cast (i love Jessica) already guarantees a ticket sale from me!
