Guillermo Del Toro Teases He’ll Get ‘Kinky’ With Crimson Peak

Guillermo Del Toro

Guillermo del Toro is going big with next week’s Pacific Rim, but he’ll get back to basics with a “much, much, much smaller movie” in Crimson Peak, his next feature film.

With  a cast that includes Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam and Star Trek villain Benedict Cumberbatch, Crimson Peak is described by the director as “a Gothic romance, haunted house [movie], in the north of England.” The filmmaker spoke at length with Shock Till You Drop about his ambitions for the project, and how it’ll differ from the movies American audiences know him for.

“It’s an adult movie, an R-rated movie, pretty adult. Shockingly different from anything I’ve done in the English language,” he said. “Normally, when I go to do a movie in America for the spectacle and younger audience, for Blade or whatever.  This movie’s tone is scary and it’s the first time I get to do a movie more akin to what I do in the Spanish movies.”

Del Toro added that Crimson Peak “has a lot of kinky moments,” too.

“The only kinky moment I’ve ever shot is the leg fuck in The Devil’s Backbone,” he laughed. “This has a little more kinkiness than that.”

Crimson Peak begins shooting in February 2014.
