Jake Gyllenhaal Fan

Entertainment Weekly website has published a new interview with Antoine Fucqua about Southpaw in which he talks about the trailer spoilers and, of course, about Jake. Also, it gave a steamy new poster for the film featuring Jake and co-star Rachel McAdams.

The film received a private screening at Cannes where Harvey Weinstein proclaimed that Gyllenhaal’s performance would get the Oscar nomination he so deserved for Nightcrawler. But Gyllenhaal wasn’t Fuqua’s first choice; Eminem was long attached to Kurt Sutter’s script before he decided that his music schedule prohibited him from making the movie at this time. Gyllenhall was the first actor the director then thought of who could deliver the chops, the drive, and the athletic ability of a boxer. But that’s a tall order for any actor, and though Fuqua never had any real doubts, others did.

“I sent him to the gym to audition for my trainer, Terry Claybon, and first day, Terry calls me and says, ‘Man, I think you picked the wrong dude,’” says Fuqua. “I said, ‘No, give him some more time.’ So he started working with him, and a few weeks later, he called me up again and said, ‘Oh, yeah.’ [Jake] started sparring with a few professional fighters we had in the gym with us, and he took some shots. I wanted to see what he would do. And he was in there. That’s when I knew he was going to do it.”

New ‘Southpaw’ Trailer

A new trailer for Southpaw was just released and goosebumps are everywhere! Three days ago Eminem released “Phenomenal” (listen it), his song made for the film. If you can remember, Sutter was inspired by Eminem and the film was written to be starred by him, which dropped later the project and Jake took his part, but the singer is still part of the sountrack which will be available via Shady Records on the same day as the movie hits theaters, July 24th.

Also last week while promoting her last film Aloha, co-star Rachel McAdams talked about Jake.

I was a little scared too (about Jake’s insane transformation)! He’s a beast. He’s a real animal. I haven’t seen it yet so I can’t totally comment but just watching from the sidelines he just worked so hard. I think his work is going to reflect that. It was extraordinary.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua (“The Equalizer”) and co-starring Forest Whitaker, Rachel McAdams, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Clare Foley, Miguel Gomez, Victor Ortiz, Rita Ora and Naomie Harris, “Southpaw” is due in theater July 24.

Universal released today two different trailers for the upcoming thriller Everest, plus new posters and images.

EVEREST is an upcoming 3D historical biography action adventure disaster thriller film directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns, Contraband) and adapted for the screen by William Nicholson (Gladiator) and Oscar winner Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). It is based on the real events of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster and bestselling non-fiction novel Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster by Jon Krakauer.

Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, EVEREST documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.

The epic adventure stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson, and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Focus Features has nabbed Tom Ford’s upcoming thriller Nocturnal Animals, the second feature film from the fashion designer-turned-filmmaker following 2009’s Oscar nominated A Single Man, Deadline reported. Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal are set to star.

Ford will write, direct and produce the film, which is based on Austin Wright’s novel “Tony and Susan.” Published in 1993, the book is described as follows.

Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband Edward Sheffield, an unpublished writer. Now, she’s enduring middle class suburbia as a doctor’s wife, when out of the blue she receives a package containing the manuscript of her ex-husband’s first novel. He writes asking her to read the book; she was always his best critic, he says.

As Susan reads, she is drawn into the fictional life of Tony Hastings, a math professor driving his family to their summer house in Maine. And as we read with her, we too become lost in Sheffield’s thriller. As the Hastings’ ordinary, civilized lives are disastrously, violently sent off course, Susan is plunged back into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her, and driven to name the fear that gnaws at her future and will change her life.

Production on Nocturnal Animals is planned to begin this fall. Focus will distribute the film in the U.S. with Universal Pictures handling international distribution.

Canadian actress Rachel McAdams is on cover of Marie Claire US and Jake has a quote on the article talking about his Southpaw co-star.

Jake Gyllenhaal, her costar in Southpaw (she plays the feisty, sexy, tough-as-nails wife of his embattled boxer), waxes similarly poetic: “As Gillian Welch says, ‘Some girls are blessed with a dark turn of mind.’ She has that beautiful darkness but exudes a real, true light. To be dark and light at the same time is as rare as it is infectious.” She’s also a joy to work with, he says: “I was excited to come to work. And that’s no bullshit. You can feel her heart when you are acting with her. I know the audience can, too, which is why people love to watch her.”
