Benedict Cumberbatch is set to star in spooky new thriller Crimson Peak.

The Sherlock actor will join Spider-Man's Emma Stone and Sons Of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam in director Guillermo del Toro's haunted house movie, reported Variety.

So far little is known about the characters or the plot of the film.

Benedict has several movies coming up, including August: Osage County, The Fifth Estate and Star Trek Into Darkness.

According to the Daily Mail, the actor has revealed he ate 4,000 calories a day and worked out for hours to bulk up to play a menacing villain in the Star Trek film.

He told SFX magazine: "It was the first time I'd really intensely shape-shifted... To go up from a 38 chest to a 42, eating 4,000 calories a day and training two hours a day, as well as the stunt rehearsals and fight choreography, was the most physical demand that's ever been made of me for the screen."

Capricorn:

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
