Variety: Benedict Cumberbatch Will Star in New Guillermo Del Toro Movie

4 Apr

English actor Bandersnatch Cummerbund will star in a new film by Guillermo del Toro called “Crimson Peak” described elsewhere on the internet as “a haunted house movie.” Del Toro still hasn’t made his epic hard-R, 3D, multimillion-dollar version of H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness” but there’s no one out there telling him he can’t (amazing New Yorker profile about the scuttling of that project and his version of The Hobbit, which, ironically, now also stars Benderful Condorsnatch but probably would have been better with Del Toro directing). Hopefully, if this and “Pacific Rim” are hits, he’ll be able to make the case for “Mountains” again. It’s also good to see two terrific pros establish a relationship—it would be marvelous to see Batchsort Counterstrict and Del Toro team up multiple times.
