Jake Gyllenhaal and Denis Villeneuve reunite for Jo Nesbø’s ‘The Son’
Jake Gyllenhaal is reteaming with Sicario director Denis Villeneuve to bring Jo Nesbø’s crime novel The Son to the big screen. This will mark the third collaboration for Gyllenhaal and Villeneuve, following Prisoners and Enemy. Nine Stories’ producers Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker and Bold Film’s Michel Litvak are behind this project; Bold’s Gary Michael Walters is executive producing with Jo Nesbo and Niclas Salomonsson.
“Denis is one of the most inspiring filmmakers working today, and partnering with him on The Son represents everything that Jake and I strived for when we launched the company. Provocative and edgy material in collaboration with a visionary storyteller,” Marker said Thursday in announcing the project.
