‘Proof’ pic’s a Jake walk

Hart, Sharp to produce pic via their Hart Sharp shingle

Jake Gyllenhaal has joined Gwyneth Paltrow in advanced negotiations to star in Miramax’s feature version of “Proof,” to be directed by John Madden.

Pic, based on David Auburn’s Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play, previously saw Madden and Paltrow collaborate on the project on the London stage.

As yet no startdate has been set, and it’s undetermined whether pic will shoot in the U.K.

Producers John Hart and Jeffrey Sharp, who initially optioned the film rights to the play, will produce the pic for Miramax via their Hart Sharp shingle.

Drama, which Auburn adapted with a subsequent rewrite by Rebecca Miller, concerns the daughter of a recently deceased mathematician who must deal with the legacies of brilliance and madness her father left her. Gyllenhaal will play a young math student who worked with the deceased mathematician.

Gyllenhaal, repped by CAA and Management 360, most recently completed work on sci-fi thriller “The Day After Tomorrow,” for 20th Century Fox. His other screen credits include “Moonlight Mile,” for Disney and Hyde Park Entertainment, and Miguel Arteta’s “The Good Girl,” in which he starred opposite Jennifer Aniston for Myriad Pictures and Fox Searchlight.
