Some new behind the scenes images have been released by Jessica Chastain, via her Facebook page, for Guillermo del Toro’s haunted house film, Crimson Peak. They show Chastain in the process of having a full body cast made for the film. Why she needs a full prosthetic for the film is completely unknown!!!! Check them out below.
Plot details for Crimson Peak are being heavily guarded, as are character details, apart from that Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain will play aristocratic siblings. The film has been described as a “classical gothic romance ghost story” by del Toro and as “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.” Back in December the film was also described as being influenced by classic haunted house films like The Innocents, The Shining and Robert Wise’s The Haunting, while other films like The Exorcist and The Omen were also mentioned.
The cast also includes Jim Beaver, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam. Filming is expected to begin in January 2014.
