Guillermo del Toro Has Cast Rooney Mara in His Next Film Nightmare Alley

Actress Rooney Mara, known for her roles in The Social Network, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and Carol, has been hired to come aboard Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film, Nightmare Alley.

Mara joins the previously cast Bradley Cooper, Cate Blanchett, Willem Dafoe, Michael Shannon, Ron Perlman, Toni Collette, and Richard Jenkins.

Talk about a star-studded cast! And it’s pretty fun that most of these actors have worked together before on other films, some of them directed by del Toro. Deadline reports the following synopsis for the del Toro-written script:

The film is based on William Lindsay Gresham’s 1946 novel about a corrupt con-man who teams with a female psychiatrist to trick people into giving them money. Mara plays Molly, the closest thing to Stan’s true love. He meets her early on and they take the act they learned from the circus to Chicago. Cooper plays Stan.
