Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures' upcoming haunting gothic horror story from director Guillermo del Toro is an early 1900s gothic romance about an aspiring author (played by Mia Wasikowska) who, in the aftermath of a family tragedy, is torn between love for her childhood friend (Charlie Hunnam) and a mysterious outsider (Tom Hiddleston). Trying to escape the ghosts of her past, she is swept away to rural England to a house that breathes, bleeds…and remembers.
