I called it.
The film is expected to start shooting in January 2014. However, no one really knows much about the plot except the fact that del Toro himself mentioned the film being set “at the turn of the century”. He also referred to it as “a gothic romance with ghosts”.
I can get behind that.
Hiddleston is also set to join already recruited stars Charlie Hunnam (recently cast as Christian Grey), Jessica Chastain (The Help, Zero Dark Thirty), and Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Lawless). Hiddleston’s other upcoming projects include playing Captain Hook in Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy and appearing in Muppets Most Wanted.
In short, Tom isn’t going anywhere.
