Benedict Cumberbatch On Why He Dropped Out Of CRIMSON PEAK (No, It Wasn't STAR WARS)
The Star Trek Into Darkness star hints that his reason for walking away from Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak was down to creative differences with the Pacific Rim director, and again confirms that Star Wars Episode VII had nothing to do with it. Check it out!
In a lengthy interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Benedict Cumberbatch has once again been forced to dismiss reports that he has signed up for a leading role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII. It's now become hard to tell whether he's becoming frustrated with denying the rumours or just isn't trying as hard as he did with Khan, but at this point it still seems as if he's at least open to the idea! "I don't know. Who knows, who knows? Nothing is known of that. I worked with J.J. [Abrams, who directed Star Trek Into Darkness and now is prepping Episode VII]. Obviously, he knows. Everyone who wants to be part of that film, they know about." As for whether that movie really does have anything to do with why he dropped out of Crimson Peak, he added: "Absolutely not. No, no, no, no. That was nothing to do with it at all. [It was] between me and Guillermo, to be honest. It was amicable, and that's all I'm going to say." I guess he saw Pacific Rim! Anyway, the actor once again expresses his interest in taking on a role in Star Wars Episode VII and reiterates that the movie had nothing to do with his decision for walking away from Guillermo del Toro's upcoming horror movie in the following video interview with MTV News.
