Mia Wasikowska to replace Emma Stone in `Crimson Peak`
Los Angeles: ‘Alice in Wonderland’ star Mia Wasikowska is reportedly in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro`s gothic horror movie ‘Crimson Peak’ after Emma Stone left the project.
Stone was originally attached to star to play a young author named Edith Cushing who discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be. The actress left the project over scheduing issues, the Wrap reported.
Benedict Cumberbatch and Jessica Chastain will co-star as siblings from an aristocratic family, while del Toro`s "Pacific Rim" star Charlie Hunnam also has a lead role in the movie.
Del Toro wrote the thriller with Matthew Robbins and Lucinda Coxon.
Legendary will produce and serve as one of the movie`s main financing partners, while Universal has retained an option to co-finance at a later date. Production will begin early next year.
