The future of “Crimson Peak” was put into question when Benedict Cumberbatch announced his departure, but Tom Hiddleston has just stepped up to save the day.

The “Avengers” actor will report for duty in January to begin production under the direction of Guillermo del Toro.

As previously announced, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, and Charlie Hunnam will all have starring roles in the project as well.

“Crimson Peak” is slated to hit theaters in April of 2015. Per the synopsis, “Young author Edith Cushing discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be.”
