Directed by Guillermo del Toro
Guillermo del Toro has found the first occupant for his haunted house thriller "Crimson Peak," as Emma Stone is in early negotiations to star in the Legendary Pictures movie.

While the deal is not completed, Stone is expected to star in the pic that del Toro will direct.

Legendary will produce and be a participating financing partner on the movie, with Universal Pictures retaining an option to also finance at a later date. The film is set to begin shooting in February 2014.

Haunted house pics have seen a resurgence in recent years after FilmDistrict's "Insidious" and Paramount's "Paranormal Activity" franchise hit big at the box office.
