Guillermo del Toro's next phantasmagorical outing is getting a new moniker. His forthcoming Gothic romance "Crimson Peak," starring the scarily great Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Charlie Hunnam and Tom Hiddleston, has been given the more anonymously spooky title "Haunted Peak" and a tentative release date of April, 2015. Shooting begins in February at Pinewood Toronto Studios and lasts until May. In between now and then, del Toro will direct the pilot for "The Strain," an FX series based on a trilogy of lousy vampire novels the filmmaker co-wrote with "The Town" scribe Chuck Hogan.

The speculation that followed Benedict Cumberbatch's exit from Guillermo del Toro's R-rated Gothic romance "Crimson Peak" was deafening and absurd, most of it hinged around the fact that the star (whose "The Fifth Estate" just opened the Toronto International Film Festival) was supposedly leaving to headline J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII." When that turned out to be patently false, people sort of forgot about the spot that he had left in "Crimson Peak," a spot that has just been filled with an equally charming British dandy: Tom Hiddleston.

Our alternate headline for this was Benedict Cumberbatch Cumber-bails On "Crimson Peak" but that seemed a bit ridiculous. But either way, Guillermo Del Toro is now down a man, but he has plenty of time to find a replacement, so it's probably not a project altering departure.

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.

Benedict Cumberbatch is pretty much on the precipice of stardom, if not already there. As the villain in both "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" this year, his wonderfully English name will be increasingly familiar to American audiences, and that's not to mention a potential awards baiting performance as Julian Assange in "The Fifth Estate" this fall. So what's next? He's gonna get some period clothes out of the closet again. Not to solve mysteries or endure various dramas, but instead to ride with whatever Guillermo del Toro is cooking up.

While we were a touch disappointed by the teaser trailer, we're still pretty amped to see Guillermo Del Toro's monsters vs. robots epic "Pacific Rim." In part it's because it's the "Pan's Labyrinth" director's first film in five years. In part, it's because it has ROBOTS FIGHTING MONSTERS. And in part, it's because of the sheer confidence that everyone involves seems to be showing. Warners have already commissioned a script for a sequel, and now, Del Toro has shown that he's happy with the job that his lead in the film, Charlie Hunnam, has done: by casting him in his next movie.

Though she's rightfully earned her claim to fame thanks to a string of comic roles, Emma Stone has slowly branching out. She's put on her blockbuster shoes with "The Amazing Spider-Man" franchise, gone down the drama route with "The Help" and last weekend gave a stab at playing the femme fatale in the guns and molls goof "Gangster Squad." But for one her next roles, she'll be heading into new territory.
