Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Stronger) is reuniting with Nightcrawler scribe and Oscar-nominated director Dan Gilroy in the latter's new untitled film for Netflix. Further narrative details are being kept under wraps.
British actress Zawe Ashton, "Stranger Things" breakout Natalia Dyer, Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge, Tony Award victor Daveed Diggs, Academy Award nominee Toni Collette, and Academy Award nominee John Malkovich have signed on to join Gyllenhaal and Russo in upcoming horror-thriller.
According to Variety, the outlet that broke the news of the cast expansion, the film's "plot follows big-money artists and mega-collectors who pay a high price when art collides with commerce".
Nightcrawler marked the directorial debut of screenwriter Gilroy and featured Gyllenhaal as a freelance crime reporter in Los Angeles. Gilroy's follow-up Roman Israel, Esq. starring Denzel Washington, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival (TIFF) last September but didn't connect either with critics or audiences, even though Denzel received an Oscar nomination for the role.
Production is now underway in Los Angeles, and the movie will bow sometime in 2018. She's also repped by WME and One Entertainment.
After blowing people away with his performance as Thomas Jefferson in the Broadway hit Hamilton, the WME-repped Diggs wrote and starred in his own film Blindspotting, which premiered to raves at Sundance before being picked up by Lionsgate.
Sturridge is best known for his Tony-nominated role in "Orphans".
Many fans will know Natalia Dyer from her breakout role in Stranger Things, where she plays the heroic Nancy Wheeler. While a specific release date hasn't been announced, the film is expected to debut sometime this year. He is repped by WME. Collette is repped by CAA and United Management.
