The star of PACIFIC RIM looks likely to reteam with its director on the upcoming haunted-house feature.

Variety reports
that the kaiju epic’s Charlie Hunnam is in talks to star in CRIMSON PEAK, which
Guillermo del Toro will direct for Legendary Films. Story details on the movie
are currently being kept secret, with del Toro and Lucinda Coxon rewriting the
original script by del Toro and regular writing partner Matthew Robbins. Emma
Stone is also in negotiations to take a lead in CRIMSON PEAK, which is set to
roll in February 2014, with Universal Pictures (releasing the del Toro-produced
MAMA today) retaining an option to come aboard as a financier. Hunnam just
wrapped the fifth season of the FX TV series SONS OF ANARCHY, on which he
co-stars with del Toro favorite Ron Perlman; PACIFIC RIM opens July 12 from
Warner Bros.
