Guillermo del Toro has no shortage of projects on his plate to choose from and we’ve been wondering what he’d direct after Pacific Rim. It isn’t Hellboy 3, Pacific Rim 2, or the DC movie he was recently looking into. Instead, he’ll be directing the ghost story, Crimson Peak, for Legendary Pictures.

According to Deadline, del Toro has written the script with Matthew Robbins and here’s how he described the project: “a very set-oriented, classical but at the same time modern take on the ghost story. It will allow me to play with the conventions of the genre I know and love, and at the same time subvert the old rules.”

Guillermo del Toro also mentioned that Legendary Pictures is giving him a decent budget for this film and he’s aiming for a movie that can sit next to some of the great classic horror films. »
