About ‘Nightmare Alley’:

Nightmare Alley is an upcoming American psychological thriller film directed by Guillermo del Toro with a screenplay by del Toro and Kim Morgan, based on the novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham.

The project was announced in December 2017, when Guillermo del Toro announced he would write and direct the movie.

In April 2019, Leonardo DiCaprio started meetings to star in the film. Filming was supposed to take place in the fall of 2019 in Toronto, and Dan Laustsen was established to work as the cinematographer. In June, Bradley Cooper started early discussions to supplant DiCaprio. In July 2019, production was shifted back to a January 2020 start date. In August 2019, Cate Blanchett was in negotiations to join the film. Both Cooper and Blanchett were confirmed to act in the movie, along with the addition of Rooney Mara. Toni Collette and David Strathairn were added in September, with Strathairn replacing Michael Shannon who dropped out due to “scheduling conflicts.” Willem Dafoe was named in October and Holt McCallany would enter the next month.

Principal photography began on January 21, 2020. On March 13, Disney stopped production on the film due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Production will resume on September 16.
