Finally we can see the light of this project. Back in 2008 David O. Russell shot a film called Nailed, scripted by Al Gore’s daughter Kristen Gore. It was a political satire in which Jessica Biel played a waitress who is shot in the head with a nail gun, leading to crazy sexual urges and a trip to Washington to lobby for health care and breaks for people with unusual disabilities. The film had shaky financing and was shut down several times. A key scene was never shot, and the movie sat, unfinished, ever since.
The film is now called “Accidental Love” and its release is set for February. Watch the trailer below:
The February issue of Empire Magazine listed ‘the 29 films you have to see in 2015′, and Everest is among them. They featured a brand new image of Jake as Scott Fischer on this based-on-a-true-story tale about the ill-fated 1996 climb to the top of the world’s tallest mountain. The film also feature Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Robin Wright, Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington and is directed by Baltasar Kormákur. Everest will be released in September 18.

The Playlist ranked on their website the 21 best performances in 2014, and they chosen Jake Gyllenhaal as their #1.
1. Jake Gyllenhaal in “Nightcrawler”
Jake Gyllenhaal is so brilliant in “Nightcrawler” that it almost feels like it’s a breakthrough performance. In reality, he’s been slowly surging ever since 2011’s “Source Code,” and through gritty and psychologically pulsating turns in “End of Watch,” “Enemy,” and “Prisoners,” he’s landed what’s sure to stay one of his most memorable roles, giving the performance of his career thus far. His Louis Bloom has been compared to Travis Bickle and Patrick Bateman, and the sociopathic similarities are certainly there, but Gyllenhaal has evolved far beyond merely channeling other actors’ performances. He’s made the demented, determined and diabolical Lou Bloom completely his own creation. Losing pounds for the role in order to embody a starved vulture, Gyllenhaal connects with Dan Gilroy’s crackling dialogue as if he’s been speaking it since birth. No one else this year will transfix you to the screen, almost through sleep-deprived glazed hypnosis, while simultaneously creeping you the fuck out. Gyllenhaal manages to make the audience root for a scumbag, and with Lou Bloom, has his name etched in the hall of fame for playing twisted maniacs.
