Guillermo del Toro has swapped the most in-demand British actor of the moment for that other most in-demand British actor of the moment.
Loki himself, actor Tom Hiddleston, will replace Benedict Cumberbatch in del Toro's gothic horror tale "Crimson Peak" at Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures.
Cumberbatch left the role late last month. Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam also star in the tale of a woman who discovers that her new husband is not who he claims to be.
Filming on the project is slated to begin in January.
