Del Toro To Climb To Crimson Peak And Subvert The Classical Ghost Story

Guillermo Del Toro has set Crimson Peak as his next film and recruited Crimson Petal and the White writer Lucinda Coxon to do a new draft of the script with him. She’s clearly quite the crimson specialist.

The film will be a ghost story, and was initially conceived by Del Toro directly after Pan’s Labyrinth. He’s interested, he told Deadline, in playing around with form and subverting it a little.

Something he already did with Devil’s Backbone, though this time he seems to be thinking along more The Haunting, Turn of the Screw lines. The sort of thing he’s produced before but never directed – cf. The Orphanage, maybe Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, to an extent.

Pacific Rim backers Legendary are funding and will produce the film, and Del Toro suggests it’s just the next step in an ongoing relationship. Later down the line, he teases, could be At the Mountains of Madness.

Yes please.
