We previously shared the news that Jessica Chastain, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam have all signed up to star in Legendary Pictures and Guillermo del Toro's gothic horror tale CRIMSON PEAK, and now "Supernatural" and "Justified" star Jim Beaver has confirmed via his Facebook page that he has also joined the growing cast, posting the following:
Legendary will produce and be a participating financing partner on the movie, with Universal Pictures retaining an option to finance at a later date. The film is set to begin shooting in February 2014. Plot details are unknown at this time as del Toro and Lucinda Coxon work through a rewrite on a script del Toro and Matthew Robins originally penned.
del Toro recently spilled a few details about his ghost story, stating...
“It’s a very traditional Gothic romance and at the same time very modern in the sense that it has strong sex and violence. I’ve never done a movie that has anything remotely kinky, but this movie is a little kinky and the violence is very shocking. So you’re traversing through a tranquil Gothic romance, and all of a sudden this terrifying and sexual stuff comes in. It’s very much a haunted-house movie, but I don’t think there’s a ghost of a chance that we’ll get a PG-13 rating."
