Jake Gyllenhaal To Receive Golden Eye Award At ZFF
8 September, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines

Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal will receive the Golden Icon award for lifetime achievement at this year’s Zurich International Film Festival.

Gyllenhaal will attend the Zurich fest to present Stronger, in which he stars as Boston marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman. Stronger, directed by David Gordon Green, which will have its world premiere in Toronto on Friday, will screen Oct. 3 in Zurich.

At least since his breakout performance as Donnie Darko in 2001, Gyllenhaal has counted among the greatest actors of his generation. His embrace of complicated and troubled characters — a closeted gay man struggling with love and identity in Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain, a psychotic ambulance chasing video journalist in Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler — has been rewarded with both critical and commercial acclaim.

‘Stronger’ Will Premiere at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital
28 August, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Stronger

The US premiere of “Stronger,” the movie about Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, will not be held in a fancy theater in New York, Los Angeles, or even in Boston. Instead, the much-anticipated movie starring Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal will screen first, on Sept. 12, at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown, where Bauman and 31 others injured in the bombings were treated.

“It’s important for us to be in that space,” says “Stronger” director David Gordon Green.

The movie, which arrives in theaters Sept. 22, is the second big-budget Hollywood film about the events of April 15, 2013, when two bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three and wounding more than 260. Bauman, who was there to greet his then-girlfriend, lost both of his legs in one of the blasts.

Gyllenhaal and Russo To Reunite With ‘Nightcrawler’ Director
21 June, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, Nightcrawler

After the compelling team-up in Nightcrawler, writer-director Dan Gilroy is plotting a new untitled film set in the art world that will reunite his stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo.

Sources said Gilroy’s CAA reps are shopping the untitled film and that multiple buyers are swirling. Gilroy went from vet screenwriter to a remarkable directorial debut on the pitch black Nightcrawler, with Gyllenhaal playing the sociopath cameraman and Russo the local news producer who sells her soul for ratings.

Gilroy followed by directing his script Inner City with Denzel Washington starring for Sony. His proposed third film is very different from these, and it will likely land before week’s end. Stay tuned.

Jake Gyllenhaal to Star In and Produce ‘The Lost Airman’
5 June, 2017 Author: Catagories: News & Headlines, The Lost Airman

Jake Gyllenhaal is teaming up with John Lesher for The Lost Airman, a true life World War Two adventure project.

Gyllenhaal is attached to star in the project and will produce with Riva Marker, his partner at NineStories. Lesher will produce through his Le Grisbi Productions.

Based on recently declassified materials, the book tells the incredible true story of Arthur Meyerowitz, an American turret-gunner whose B-24 bomber was shot down over Vichy France in 1943. While hiding in the French countryside, Meyerowitz befriended Marcel Talliander, the founder of the legendary French resistance group Morhange, who helped shelter the man from the Gestapo through his secret network. After six months of barely evading capture, Meyerowitz escaped through a carefully orchestrated plan that also involved R.F.W. Cleaver, one of the most accomplished British fighter pilots of the war.
