Jake Gyllenhaal (End of Watch, Donnie Darko) is in talks to play a detective investigating the kidnapping of a young girl in Alcon Entertainment’s long, long, long gestured Prisoners. Discussions are ongoing, and if the deal closes, Gyllenhaal would join Hugh Jackman and Melissa Leo with Denis Villeneuve (“Incendies”) helming.
Script, penned by Aaron Guzikowski, “revolves around a small-town carpenter whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, he takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against the big-city detective assigned to the case.” It’s said to have echoes of The Silence of the Lambs and Seven.
Production is scheduled to begin in early 2013. Alcon is targeting a Fall 2013 release through its output deal with Warner Bros.
