Legendary Pictures seems to be liking their business relationship with director Guillermo del Toro. The Hellboy filmmaker is making Pacific Rim for the financier company, having fun building giant monsters and robots to fight it out next summer in theaters.
The del Toro news of the day is that Legendary wants to make the man's next movie, a ghost story called Crimson Peak. Del Toro pitched the idea to the company along with several other ones, thinking that the bean counters wouldn't necessarily go with his idea for a scary movie set inside a big haunted house. Instead, Legendary's president liked Crimson Peak so much he called up Guillermo before he could finish the screenplay, telling the Mexican auteur that Legendary needed to make this happen.
The deets on what Crimson Peak is particularly about haven't been revealed as del Toro wants to keep some twists and shocks a secret for now. »
