Jessica Chastain

And we thought the casting up of David O. Russell's movie was getting intense. While monsters may take center stage of Guillermo del Toro's upcoming "Pacific Rim," for his next feature effort, "Crimson Peak," the director is impressing us thus far with the roster of talent he's assembling.

One day after Benedict Cumberbatch came on board, Variety reports that Jessica Chastain has knocked another auteur off her list and joined the picture as well. Emma Stone and Charlie Hunnam are also part of the cast for the film, about which zero details are being let out of the bag at the moment. "It’s set at the turn of the century and it is a gothic romance with ghosts. When I use the GR [gothic romance] term I use it not in the Barbara Cartland model but rather in a Bronte fashion. Dark and stormy and wind-swept," del Toro wrote on his official forums last year. Sounds good to us.

We'll be waiting a while for this, as it's not set to shoot until early 2014 (del Toro will be knocking out the TV series "The Strain" first). But until then, Chastain will be busy enough, and this summer she'll shoot Liv Ullmann's "Miss Julie."

    Noooooo! Why, Guillermo, WHY?! She is one of the worst actors in Hollywood history. I am absolutely flabbergasted by all the acclaim.
