Both Benedict Cumberbatch and Jessica Chastain have been announced as joining the cast of Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming gothic horror movie, 'Crimson Peak.'

The 'Sherlock' star and Oscar-nominated actress join Emma Stone and Charlie Hunnam in the Legendary Pictures production which will be del Toro's follow-up to 'Pacific Rim.' 

Written by del Toro with Matthew Robbins and Lucinda Coxon: the film is a ghost story described by the director as  "…a very set-oriented, classical but at the same time modern take on the ghost story. It will allow me to play with the conventions of the genre I know and love, and at the same time subvert the old rules.”
