Nightmare Alley Remake (D: Del Toro S: DiCAprio) - news, rumors, etc.

Leonardo DiCaprio Eyes Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Nightmare Alley’ Remake (EXCLUSIVE)
By JUSTIN KROLL

Leonardo DiCaprio is in negotiations to star in Fox Searchlight’s remake of “Nightmare Alley,” Guillermo del Toro’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning film “The Shape of Water.”

Del Toro will direct the pic and co-wrote the script with Kim Morgan. The pic is being produced and financed by Guillermo Del Toro and J. Miles Dale with TSG Entertainment, with Fox Searchlight acquiring worldwide distribution rights to the film.

The film is based on the 1947 Fox movie that starred Tyrone Power as an ambitious young con-man who hooks up with a female psychiatrist who is even more corrupt than he is. At first, they enjoy success fleecing people with their mentalist act, but then she turns the table on him, out-manipulating the manipulator.

The plan is for the film to shoot in the fall as del Toro fills out the remaining roles.

After “The Shape of Water” went on to win several Oscars, including best picture and best director for del Toro, the auteur decided to hold off on picking his next directing gig, only focusing his efforts as a producer on the Searchlight movie “Antlers.”

DiCaprio has not been seen in a movie since his Oscar-winning performance in “The Revenant” in 2015, choosing to take some time off before signing on to star in Quentin Tarantino’s next film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” That film, which also stars Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie and centers on the Manson family murders, is scheduled to bow on July 26.

He is repped by LBI Entertainment.
