Announced back in April, Guillermo del Toro is not just producing but also directing the upcoming thriller Nightmare Alley for Fox Searchlight, which will star Bradley Cooper. And The Wrap reports today that Cate Blachett is now in talks to join Cooper in the film.

Collider reports some other actors who may potentially join: Toni Collette, Richard Jenkins, Ron Perlman, Michael Shannon, Willem Dafoe, Rooney Mara and Mark Povinelli.

Del Toro co-wrote the script with Kim Morgan.

The film is based on the 1947 movie about a corrupt con-man who teams up with a female psychiatrist to trick people into giving them money.

Like the original, it’s based on the novel by William Lindsay Gresham.

J. Miles Dale is producing alongside del Toro.
