Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch steps down from Guillermo Del Toro’s thriller.
The Sherlock star has changed his mind about participating in Crimson Peak four months ahead of shooting, The Hollywood Reporter reports.
Bolstered by roles in Sherlock and Star Trek Into Darkness, Benedict Cumberbatch has quickly become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand stars. The Hollywood Reporter’s sources did not specify the reason for the actor’s decision to resign from Crimson Peak but did specify that it was not due to a conflict with another project.
Guillermo Del Toro has experimented with a number of very different genres, from dark fantasy with Pan’s Labyrinth to sci-fi and action with Pacific Rim. With Crimson Peak, the Mexican filmmaker will explore the horror genre, complete with a haunted house.
The remaining cast includes Charlie Hunnam (who acted under Del Toro in Pacific Rim), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) and Mia Wasikowska (Stoker). Before the end of 2013, Cumberbatch will appear in both Bill Condon’s The Fifth Power and Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave. — AFP Relaxnews
