Leonardo DiCaprio In Talks to Star in 'Nightmare Alley' Remake

Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to join the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley remake.

The 44-year-old actor is negotiating a deal that would have him star in the flick, based on the William Lindsay Gresham novel of the same name.

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Leonardo DiCaprio

There was previously a film made in 1947, but Guillermo‘s version will be more based on the book.

The book follows the sleazy inhabitants of show business, following the rise and fall of a con man in a second rate carnival.

Nightmare Alley is set to begin production this fall.

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    Lukas seems to be in nyc with the wolves as well.

  • Helen

    Vinny posted more or less the same pic as Lukas, lol.

    Isn’t it strange how some of these friends of Leo are in the same situation as him – no children, no marriages and well in to their 40′s.

    Especially for a couple that were seen being loved up and β€œcanoodling” at Coachella,

  • Surfgirl

    Lol I wasn’t kidding it was beautiful in ny today

  • pppf

    He’s probably wrapped up in his hoodie, so people aren’t noticing him as “Leo” but as “that weird dude that might rob the place.”

  • disqus_rbXioNurFu

    So the time100 gala was tonight. Maybe one of the reasons Leo was in nyc? I didn’t read that he or Jane Goodall were there though.

  • Veronica Castrillon

    His name is Leo. Why are you using quotes? Leo’s been papped in his hoodie for most of his relationship with Camila Morrone. A Just Jared article last week had photos of him and Camila both wearing hoodies. Leo was also wearing a bandana covering most of his face and there were no comments about looking like “that weird dude who might rob the place.” Is that this week’s fraud? Leo as jewel thief? Why do people lie, pretending they don’t know what they’re talking about?

  • Veronica Castrillon

    Probably because those tweets were defrauding the public about what he was doing. Leo and his associates might actually be more circumspect about committing fraud.

  • Helen

    Ok thanks crazy car lady. Nice to see you calm for once 🀫

  • Sunflower

    Actually, I did comment that Leo looked like a thief with the ridiculous bandana over his face as soon as I saw it.

  • Sunflower

    Oh that the car lady?

  • Helen

    I’d say so. No crazy posts here on this thread, then this aboveπŸ‘†. Changes her name for posting constantly. Cue the stream of crazy posts πŸ™„

  • Sarah

    I don’t know if I’m being delusional, but his eyes look so dead/empty in this article….

  • Pennywise

    Oh, Bar. What’s with the taxes? Fakelationship revealed?

  • LALA

    I think Leo cared for Gisselle and Bar the most. He stayed with them the longest. Bar is trying to stay out of jail and not pay the money she owes. I guess she could asked her billioniare husband for the money, lol.

  • Sarah

    What happened? Any update on Bar?

    Shes the prettiest he’s dated, but her personality looks suspicious imo

  • asleo

    George dicaprio send a letter to bar, because she ask him for help!
    Can you believed? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • pppf

    Lol. You’re an idiot.

  • pppf

    I’m sure Irmelin didn’t get a letter asking for help. This saga gets more entertaining.

  • pppf

    I think she is the prettiest with the best body by far.

    But I do think her personality is questionable. She dodged the mandatory draft in Israel by getting married, obviously cheated or lied to the government of Israel about her place of residence and money during her relationship with Leo.

    Of course, their Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was elected for the forth time (?) knowing that he and his wife face corruption charges themselves. It looks like the government of Israel doesn’t mess around with corruption.

  • Pennywise

    Only if she paid him!πŸ˜‚ I don’t think Leo would let him do that.

  • Pennywise

  • Pennywise

    Yes, why is that a problem? Why can’t her loving hubby bail her out? Weird.

  • Pennywise

    Yes, why is that a problem? Why can’t her loving hubby bail her out? Weird.

  • Pennywise

    Idk. Looks like she has to pay $ 4,5 million, which is not a big deal for her filthy rich husband, is it?

  • asleo

    No, George send a letter to bar for help her writen that she lived with his son (leo) from 2009 to 2011
    Any news about the lovely couple in NY? Weird

  • asleo

    Hahahah… amazing… articles says that bar show a letter from George to the judge explaining that she lived with Leo from 2009 to 2011! And alot of photos 🀭
    And the judge dont believed so he determined that bar have to pay 4 millions

  • Sarah

    Right?! What’s the point of being rich if its not gonna be of any usage. Bet hes greedy.

  • Veronica Castrillon

    No, I’m not an idiot. Use your own words, because I don’t understand your references. I only know that you’re using references.

  • Veronica Castrillon

    You know I’m not MillionEuros. I don’t know why you’re trolling me.

  • Veronica Castrillon

    You know I’m not MillionEuros, but that’s not going to stop your bullshitting like you that think I’m her.

  • Veronica Castrillon

    No.

  • pppf

    Interesting about the letter

  • Pennywise

    The judge is an expert. He knows the relationship was fakeπŸ˜‚

  • LALA

    He probably think his finances will be under scrutiny which I am sure are not totally clean.

  • YouAreBastards

    I WANT UNDERLINE – AGAIN – THAT I DON’T LIKE THE WAY YOU ALL – ALL – HAVE BEEN TREATING ME SINCE DAY 1.
