Production has begun in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Guillermo del Toro’s remake of Nightmare Alley and we have our first look from the movie. 

TheDailyMail has posted the first stunning set photos showing-off lead actresses Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara in fantastic period costumes during a scene shot on Thursday, the pair previously starred together in the romantic drama Carol. 

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.

The rest of the stunning cast consists of Bradley Cooper, Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Ron Perlman, Holt McCallany, David Strathairn, and Richard Jenkins. 

HN Entertainment first broke the news that filming would begin January 2020 in Toronto along with our reporting now confirmed that Nightmare Alley’s production team will include cinematographer Dan Lausten (The Shape of Water), production designer Tamarra Deverell, supervising art director Brandt Gordon, and costume designer Luis Sequeira. 

Nightmare Alley is expected to wrap production on May 13th with a release date from Searchlight Pictures expected for fall/winter. 

It’s possible that filming could move over to various other Canadian cities close by including Hamilton, Ontario, Canada which was used during the filming of The Shape of Water.
