Benedict Cumberbatch to be frightfully appalled in Guillermo del Toro's haunted house movie

Having so recently remained chin-up against the ghastly horror of an impudent maître d’, Benedict Cumberbatch will now face the terrors of Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak—delightfully, a peak the same shade of that sputtering, toffee-nosed steward, once he saw Mr. Cumberbatch would be dining with the earl. Cumberbatch joins previously confirmed stars Emma Stone and Charlie Hunnam in del Toro’s “classically gothic” story, about which there are still as few details as there are people in this world whose sense of servitude is not absolutely horrid. However, we do know it concerns a haunted house possessed by all manner of beastly things that would affright Benedict Cumberbatch. For example, the specters of carriage and decorum, which are apparently long-dead.
