Jake Gyllenhaal, coming off his acclaimed performance in Nightcrawler, is teaming up with The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua for The Man Who Made It Snow, a 1980s crime movie that IM Global is launching at AFM.

Gyllenhaal will star as the man in the title, Max Mermelstein, purported to be the only American who was in the inner circle of the Colombian cartels in the go-go 1980s.

Snow is a biopic of the man and is based on his autobiography. Brent Tabor wrote the script.

Gyllenhaal will produce with Fuqua, Tabor and IM Global’s Matt Jackson.
