Guillermo to direct Crimson Peak

Guillermo del Toro will direct a new big screen ghost story

Guillermo del Toro has signed up to direct ghost story Crimson Peak.

The Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy filmmaker set up the movie and co-wrote the script, Deadline reported.

The director told the film site that the movie was "a very set-orientated, classical but at the same time modern take on the ghost story.

"It will allow me to play with the conventions of the genre I know and love, and at the same time subvert the old rules."

Filming is expected to begin early in 2014.

Guillermo's forthcoming films include sci-fi flick Pacific Rim, and he's also thought to be making a darker take on children's classic Pinocchio.
