Guillermo del Toro’s next film, “Nightmare Alley”, is revealed with first images. The opportunity to have a glimpse of his beautiful cast including Bradley Cooper, Toni Collette, Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett and Willem Dafoe.
Nightmare alley, new project by Guillermo del Toro
Guillermo del Toro is not the most prolific filmmaker. But each of his projects is eagerly awaited. We owe him works where the fantastic touches the sublime as with Pan’s Labyrinth (2006), Crimson peak (2015) and the Oscar winner The Shape of Water (2018). And when he does not tackle this form of poetic horror, it is on the side of big-show films that we find him, as with Blade 2 (2002), Hellboy (2004) and its sequel Hellboy II: The Cursed Golden Legions (2008), or Pacific Rim (2013). In the end, his filmography is limited for the moment to ten feature films. But a long-awaited eleventh will arrive soon: Nightmare alley.
Inside, we’ll follow Stanton Carlisle, a crook who teams up with Doctor Lilith Ritter. This one is more dangerous than he thinks and will turn against him. Nightmare alley is a new adaptation ofa noir novel by William Lindsay Gresham, The Charlatan (1946), after the 1947 fillm directed by Edmund Goulding. On the surface, the film shouldn’t have a fantasy element but be pure film noir. So it would be a first for Guillermo del Toro.
At the casting Guillermo del Toro offered himself beautiful people with Bradley Cooper and Toni Collette in the first two roles. Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins and Ron Perlman will also be present with them.. They are revealed (almost all) in superb pictures shared by the American media Variety. One in particular caught our attention, the one with Bradley Cooper in the middle of mock up eyes.
The other images are to be discovered by clicking on the gallery below. The film is scheduled for the January 19, 2022.
