BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A film helmed by director Guillermo del Toro will begin shooting in Buffalo next week, but it’s not clear which part of the city the cast and crew will be in.

This past October, del Toro paid a visit to Buffalo’s City Hall.

Mayor Byron Brown shared photos of del Toro’s visit, saying he was “in town working on a new project.”

Buffalo Film Commissioner Tim Clark says the project will be called “Nightmare Alley,” and will star Bradley Cooper.

Del Toro’s 2017 film The Shape of Water won the Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.

Another movie, directed by Fred Olen Ray, will begin shooting on February 29.

Out of his 158 movies, this will be Ray’s 15th shot in Buffalo, according to Clark.
