Jake Gyllenhaal to Star in Indie ‘Nightcrawler’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Rene Russo co-stars in pic headed to Cannes with Dan Gilroy helming

Jake Gyllenhaal is continuing to focus on edgy, adult thrillers as he is set to star along with Rene Russo in the indie “Nightcrawler” that Tony Gilroy will produce.

Dan Gilroy is helming from a script he penned.

Story follows the story of a driven young man who discovers the nocturnal world of L.A. freelance crime journalism.

Gilroy will produce along with Gyllenhaal and Jennifer Fox along with Michel Litvak and David Lancaster who are producing and financing via their Bold Films banner.

Sierra/Affinity will kick off international sales in Cannes. CAA packaged the film and co-represents the film’s North American distribution rights with WME.

The film marks the directorial debut for Dan Gilroy, who co-wrote “The Bourne Legacy” with his brother Tony Gilroy.

Since leaving CAA and joining WME, Gyllenhaal has tackled more story-driven adult dramas including indie “An Enemy” and Alcon Entertainment’s “Prisoners” with Hugh Jackman.

He is also repped by Bloom Hergott. Russo can be seen next in the indie “Frank and Cindy” and is repped by CAA and manager John Crosby.

Dan and Tony Gilroy are repped by CAA.
