Guillermo del Toro nightmare alley

Guillermo del Toro may have recently made a film about a god of the seas, but the Mexican-American director is the king of unfinished projects.

The Shape of Water director has announced that he will be helming a new project, a remake of the 1947 noir Nightmare Alley.
