Emma Stone Ain't Afraid of No 'Crimson Peak'

If we were ever in a haunted house, well, we'd want Emma Stone to be there, too.

The "Gangster Squad" beauty is set to get her horror on as she's in talks to join Guillermo del Toro's haunted house pic, "Crimson Peak," according to Variety.

Plot details are being kept under wraps on the project, which is currently being rewritten by del Toro and Lucinda Coxon from an original script penned by del Toro and Matthew Robins. The film is set to commence with production in Feb. 2014.

Meanwhile, 2013 is going to be a pretty big year for both the director and his leading lady. Del Toro will be unveiling his first feature film in five years, the highly anticipated "Pacific Rim," on July 12, while Stone will start principal photography on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" this spring.

Neither of them have proven immune to the January doldrums, though, as Stone's "Gangster Squad" underperformed at the box office last weekend, shot full of holes by the wide release of "Zero Dark Thirty." This weekend, "Zero" star Jessica Chastain will be going up against herself as she headlines the del Toro-produced "Mama," which will probably open decently enough (as horror movies tend to do) before quickly disappearing into the ether of awards season.

Not to be undone, Stone will also appear this month in the ensemble anthology comedy, "Movie 43," which looks to be possibly the filthiest (and perhaps even one of the funniest) movies ever made. The film opens Jan. 25.
