The Shape of Water hasn’t even reached its wide release in theaters, and Guillermo del Toro already has two new pictures lined up for Fox Searchlight! Hot off of the tremendous buzz and early awards season whispers for del Toro’s latest film, Variety reports that the incredible producer/writer/director plans to continue working with the studio on a movie called Antlers and a remake of 1947’s Nightmare Alley.
Antlers will be produced by Guillermo del Toro, and the studio is currently in talks with Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace, Black Mass) to direct. The film is described as a supernatural story about a young teacher and a troubled student. The script was written by Henry Chaisson and Nick Antosca (Hannibal, Channel Zero, The Forest) based off the short story “The Quiet Boy” by Antosca.
