Have you seen Jake Gyllenhaal's performance in End of Watch? It was tremendous - catch it if you're into R-rated gritty dramas. Hot off of that critically acclaimed film, Gyllenhaal has just signed on to the thriller Prisoners for director Denis Villeneuve.
Gyllenhaal joins Hugh Jackman in the drama which will film next year. We can expect to see Prisoners in theaters in late 2013.
The official synopsis: The story revolves around a small-town carpenter named Keller (Jackman) whose young daughter and her best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), a hot shot cop with confidence to burn, assigned to the case.
In addition to End of Watch, Gyllenhaal has been keeping busy with Prisoners director Villeneuve on An Enemy.
