Guillermo del Toro Eyes ‘Carol’ Reunion & More for ‘Nightmare Alley’

There may be no director more embedded in Film Twitter than Guillermo del Toro, who expresses his adoration for cinema–from gems both beloved and lost to history, to championing modern directors from all of the world. So, it should be no surprise, that word has it he’s staging a reunion of the stars from one of Film Twitter’s most enduring favorites, Todd Haynes’ Carol.

With Bradley Cooper set to lead the director’s reimagining of the William Lindsay Gresham-penned Nightmare Alley (which Edmund Goulding turned into a 1947 film) as con man Stanton ‘Stan’ Carlisle, Cate Blanchett has now come on board the film, according to Variety. Collider then broke the news of the impressive supporting cast he’s eying to lock down, including Blanchett’s Carol co-star Rooney Mara, as well as Toni Collette, Richard Jenkins, Willem Dafoe, Michael Shannon, Ron Perlman, and Mark Povinelli.
