It’s not often one gets to write a story that includes so many names that geeks adore, but here we go: Tom Hiddleston is going to be replacing Benedict Cumberbatch in a Guillermo del Toro movie. Let’s back up a bit though. First, the actors in question. Benedict Cumberbatch, he of Sherlock fame, has been a very busy guy lately. So busy, in fact, that just this week he’s been the subject of a million rumors connecting him and the new Star Wars movie, and he’s signed on to star in a Percy Fawcett biopic called Lost City of Z. Eventually something was going to have to give in his schedule, and it looks like that something is the movie he was going to do with del Toro, Crimson Peak (okay, it was said that he’s not dropping out because of another project, but that could just be because they’re not admitting that he’s in Star Wars yet). Tom Hiddleston, he of Avengers fame, is an actor who is every bit as charming and every bit as British as Cumberbatch, so when faced with the task of finding a replacement for Cumberbatch in his film, he’s the guy del Toro decided to call. Well, Heat Vision is reporting that the deal is done, the day is saved, and del Toro has his charismatic, British centerpiece. Tim Hiddleston is all signed up to star in Crimson Peak.
