Jake Gyllenhaal plans arresting turn for Prisoners


Two men with the ability to grow hair at the speed of light, Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal look to team up for a film – not sponsored by Gillette.

“Prisoners”, which Jackman has been attached to for a while now, wants “Love and Other Drugs” and “End of Watch” (and Alicia Malone’s future hubby) Gyllenhaal to RSVP to the party.

The Denis Villeneuve directed thriller “centers on a small-town carpenter (Jackman) whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, his character takes the law into his own hands, kidnapping the man he suspects is responsible. But as his friend and daughter’s captivity continues, the carpenter begins to have doubts that he has the right man”, says THR.

Gyllenhaal would play the detective investigating the kidnapping.

Aaron Guzikowski (”Contraband”) wrote the script for the pic, which is sent out to cinemas in tin canisters next year sometime.
