Jake Gyllenhaal Has Spoken
Jake Gyllenhaal, who starred in Dennis Villeneuve’s Enemy and Prisoners, revealed that the two are teaming up again for a mysterious new project.
During the latest episode of the Team Deakins podcast, in which Oscar-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins speaks with people in the film industry. Gyllenhaal was his guest, reuniting with Deakins after they worked on Prisoners together, and during the broadcast, the conversation turned to their friend Villeneuve.
Gyllenhaal said –
“There is something we are working on now,”
Now, LMO doesn’t have any details about what this forthcoming project might be, but we will bring you more details when we hear.
Gyllenhaal then waxed lyrical about how he was convinced to star in Enemy, a film in which he plays the dual roles of a man and his double-
“At the dinner [with Villeneuve], this weird thing happened,”
“We were sitting next to this woman, and he must have planted her something, and she was like, ‘Can I tell you something? Look at this, my son looks exactly like you! He is your double. Isn’t that crazy? He’s actually your double!’ I was like, ‘What!’ And Denis looked at me and was like, ‘You have to do this movie.'”
As for what this potential collaboration could be, who knows? Villeneuve is going to be tied up in the world of Dune for the foreseeable future.
