May 28, 2019

Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Nightmare Alley’ will begin filming September 30th and wrap January 28, 2020 in Toronto, Canada. Meanwhile, del Toro serve as director and co-writer, with Kim Morgan (‘The Forbidden Room’).

Leonardo DiCaprio (‘The Wolf of Wall Street,’ ‘The Revenant’) is currently in talks to star in the film.

The most recent film from del Toro is ‘The Shape of Water,’ which won Best Picture, Directing, Score, and Production Design at the Academy Awards. Another project in the works is Netflix’s ‘Pinocchio,’ which is currently in pre-production, releasing in 2021. On that film, he’ll be director, producer and co-writer, with Patrick McHale (‘Over the Garden Wall’).

The premise of William Lindsay Gresham’s novel (of the same name) is below:

“A study of the lowest depths of showbiz and its sleazy inhabitants – the dark, shadowy world of a second rate carnival filled with hustlers, scheming grifters, and Machiavellian femmes fatales.”

Additionally, cinematographer Dan Laustsen (‘The Shape of Water,’ ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum’) and production designer Tamara Deverell (‘The Strain,’ ‘Star Trek: Discovery’) are onboard.
