Mindhunters star Holt McCallany joins Guillermo Del Toro’s Nightmare Alley

According to Deadline, Mindhunters star Holt McCallany has signed up for Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming thriller Nightmare Alley. The actor rounds out one helluva cast that includes Bradley Cooper (A Star is Born), Cate Blanchett (Where’d You Go, Bernadette?), Toni Collette (Hereditary), Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Mark Povinelli (Water for Elephants), David Strathairn (Billions) and The Shape of Water‘s Richard Jenkins.

Nightmare Alley, written by del Toro and Kim Morgan, will be based on the novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham, previously adapted into a movie by Fox in 1947. The novel “follows the exploits of Stanton Carlisle, a ruthless hustler who learns the tricks of the carny trade and uses them to establish himself as a spiritual guru, preying on the wealthy and the weak.”

The 1947 movie starred Tyrone Power as an ambitious young con-man who teams 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 tables on him, out-manipulating the manipulator.

McCallany is currently filming Guy Ritchie’s Cash Truck with Jason Statham.
