Variety is reporting that Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams have signed on to star in the Prohibition era drama “Ezekiel Moss” with Philip Seymour Hoffman directing.
Exclusive Media’s Alex Walton, president of international sales and distribution, will introduce the film to buyers at next week’s European Film Market in Berlin.
Keith Bunin’s script follows a widow who supports her spirited son by running a boarding house in a small town overrun by religious fervor. Her life is forever changed when she falls in love with Ezekiel Moss (Gyllenhaal), a mysterious drifter who can physically inhabit the spirits of the dead.
The first trailer for ‘Enemy’ is here, and it looks amazing! The film opens in limited release on March 14th, but will be available exclusively first on DirecTV on Feb 6th.
Entertainment Weekly has a brand new poster for Enemy, his new film which premieres on DirecTV on Feb. 6 and opens in theaters March 14.
Based on The Double by Nobel Prize-winning author Jose Saramago, Enemy is the second collaboration between Gyllenhaal and French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (though they filmed Enemy before making Prisoners). “The movie was a kind of cinematic laboratory for Jake and I,” says Villeneuve. “Jake is a very versatile and very creative actor, and it wasn’t very difficult to create two characters. He really fell in love with this idea of exploring this character, a man struggling with intimacy. It was something that we had a lot of ideas about, both of us. It’s a subject that really inspired him. This whole project is borne in that relationship, the bonding between Jake and I.”
When the film premiered at last fall’s Toronto Film Festival, critics applauded and everyone was gobsmacked by the film’s twisty, existential ending. “The movie is a bit mind-bugging and it’s constructed as a spiral,” says the filmmaker. “It’s a bit normal that people are a bit confused, but you’re supposed to experience pleasure with that confusion, not frustration. It was designed to be very playful, meaning it’s really a movie like some of the films that I liked when I was young, like the Twilight Zone, for instance, and some Kubrick movies that created inside of me that kind of strong vertigo feeling.”
Here is the new poster & production stills for ‘An Enemy’ featuring Jake Gyllenhaal. This film is set to release March 14th in the US. Enjoy!
