Michael Shannon, Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, and Michael Stuhlbarg are also in talks. 

 

Exactly the people I think of when I think "Supernatural cold war romance".

 

Seriously though, expect another Crimson Peak where the marketing will focus on the supernatural and then Del Toro will send out letters saying "This is a gothic romance movie" a week before release.

It's an inspired cast, at least.

You guys! The plot...

 

The story will take place in 1963, the era of the Cold War, the Vietnam conflict and the civil rights movement. Sally Hawkins will star as Elisa, a janitor working at a laboratory where an "amphibious man" has been captured and is, presumably, being experimented on. Elisa falls for the creature, and eventually calls on her neighbour (who may be played by Six Feet Underand The Visitor's Richard Jenkins if the deal's struck) to help her stage a rescue attempt.
