Guillermo del Toro Begins Production on Nightmare Alley
Searchlight Pictures has announced that Academy Award winner Guillermo del Toro (THE SHAPE OF WATER) has begun principal photography on "Nightmare Alley". The film stars Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper (A STAR IS BORN, AMERICAN SNIPER), Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett (BLUE JASMINE, ELIZABETH), Academy Award nominee Toni Collette (KNIVES OUT, "Unbelievable"), Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe (THE LIGHTHOUSE, AT ETERNITY'S GATE), Academy Award nominee Richard Jenkins (THE SHAPE OF WATER, THE VISITOR), Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara (CAROL, GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO), Ron Perlman (PACIFIC RIM, HELLBOY), and Academy Award nominee David Strathairn (LINCOLN, GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK).
In NIGHTMARE ALLEY, an ambitious young carny (Bradley Cooper) with a talent for manipulating people with a few well-chosen words hooks up with a female psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who is even more dangerous than he is.
"I'm inspired and elated to be joined by this brilliant cast. Kim Morgan and I have worked with great passion to bring the dark, raw world and language of William Gresham to the screen and now we are joined by a superb group of artists and technicians to bring it to life," said del Toro.
"Given the depth of this incredible cast, I consider it a bucket list privilege to be working alongside them all with the support of our great partners at Searchlight. It's going to be a joy to watch these world-class actors and Guillermo elevate each other's craft in this new interpretation of Gresham's seminal novel," said producer Dale.
Searchlight Pictures is a specialty film company that both finances and acquires motion pictures. It has its own marketing and distribution operations and is part of The Walt Disney Studios.
