“Supernatural” star Jim Beaver revealed on his Facebook page that he will star alongside Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Charlie Hunnam and Benedict Cumberbatch in Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak.
Legendary Pictures is producing, with Warner Bros. could be distributing.
Says Beaver, “Okay, I’m back again with that big deal that I couldn’t talk about but couldn’t shut up about either. Well, now I can talk about it, because today it came true. Guillermo del Toro, director of PAN’S LABYRINTH, HELLBOY, and the upcoming PACIFIC RIM, has cast me in one of five leading roles in his new film CRIMSON PEAK, a Gothic ghost story also starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Jessica Chastain, and Charlie Hunnam. We start shooting in Toronto in January.”
At least we also learned that it’s a “Gothic ghost story.” No other plot details have been released.
