Collider’s Steven Weintraub reported earlier this afternoon that the Crimson Peak portion of Legendary’s 2:30PM Saturday Hall H panel will include actors Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska, as well as director Guillermo Del Toro.

Chastain then confirmed the news on her Twitter account – which means that those lucky few who make it into Hall H on Saturday are in for an awesome time.

Crimson Peak, which is del Toro’s take of the haunted house story (at least until we get the long-awaited Haunted Mansion film), is set inside in a crumbling mansion in a largely rural and mountainous region of northern England in the 19th century, where young author Edith Cushing (Wasikowska) falls in love and marries Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) but then discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be.
del Toro had promised Comic-Con attendees last year during his Hall H appearance that he’d return in 2015 with Hiddleston in tow – and now it appears that he’s set to make good on that promise.
