Jake To Produce, Star In Thriller ‘Welcome To Vienna’
7 April, 2018 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Welcome To Vienna

Focus Features has acquired screen rights to the upcoming Kevin Wignall novel To Die in Vienna, and will turn it into the Jake Gyllenhaal star vehicle Welcome to Vienna. Gyllenhaal will produce through his production company Nine Stories alongside Riva Marker. Nine Stories exec veep Annie Marter will be exec producer.

The novel will be published by Thomas & Mercer in June. The pic is contemporized, but the tone feels like a throwback to paranoid thrillers like The Conversation.

Gyllenhaal will play Freddie Makin, a civilian surveillance contractor who for the past year has been watching Jiang Cheng, a Chinese academic in Vienna. When Freddie returns home early one day with a migraine, he interrupts a break-in at his apartment. The intruder escapes, but then comes back and tries to kill him.

An Update On Those ‘Batman’ Casting Rumors
16 November, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines

If someone tells you that an actor is set for The Batman, that information is false. If someone tells you that a solo Flash movie is good to go, that information is false. While it may be fun to get the scoop, accuracy counts, and right now the most accurate assessment of Warner Bros.’ plans for the DCEU is that they’re waiting to see how Justice League performs. Anything beyond that is presumptive and trying to firm up details that the studio hasn’t decided.

Earlier today, a rumor surfaced that The Batman director Matt Reeves wants Jake Gyllenhaal to play the Caped Crusader. Our Editor-in-chief Steve Weintraub did some digging, and while he confirmed that Reeves and Gyllenhaal had a meeting, Reeves has also met with a few other actors as well.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Not Worried About Looking Cool
6 November, 2017 Author: Catagories: Interviews, News & Headlines

Jake Gyllenhaal rarely attends fashion shows. He estimates he’d been to only one before he stepped into the world that Raf Simons created for Calvin Klein’s spring/summer 2018 fashion show this past July—a show that proved to be the hottest ticket of New York Fashion Week: Men’s. That’s why, as he made his way in and out of the venue, some folks took note. What is he doing here?

That question was answered last month, when Gyllenhaal’s campaign for Calvin Klein Eternity was revealed. Simons was named creative director of the famed American fashion house in August of 2016 to much fanfare, and has since set about reinvigorating the label. The new fragrance campaign—starring Gyllenhaal alongside model Liya Kebede and four-year-old actress Leila—is part of that movement to explore new territory. Unlike pretty much every other fragrance ad you’ve ever seen, it’s subtle. Quiet. And instead of focusing on sex, it focuses on the idea of family.
