Guillermo del Toro has set his sights on a new leading lady…
The Amazing Spider-Man’s Emma Stone is in talks to star in the 48-year-old Mexican filmmaker’s latest project Crimson Peak.
Stone is still in early negotiations to join the haunted house thriller, according to Variety. It’s still unclear what Stone would tackle as the movie’s plot details are still being kept under wraps.
In addition to directing the film, del Toro will write the script along with Lucinda Coxon.
Crimson Peak will mark del Toro’s return to horror film genre following his work on the sci-fi action flick Pacific Rim.
Further details of the project are still scarce, but it is said that the Hellboy helmer is looking at a February 2014 start date for the project.
del Toro recently served as the executive producer for Andres Muschietti‘s horror film Mama, which stars Jessica Chastain. The film will open in theaters this Friday, January 18.
