Jake Gyllenhaal will star in Gustav Möller’s “Snow Blind”, an adaptation of the graphic novel by Ollie Masters, that’s reportedly generating some considerable heat ahead of the virtual Cannes market.
The Patrick Ness-scripted film is being pitched as “Prisoners meets Running on Empty”.
Here’s the synopsis of the graphic novel :
What happens when you discover your parents aren’t the people you thought they were?
For high school student Teddy, life in a sleepy suburb in Alaska turns upside down when he innocently posts a photo of his dad online, only to learn he and his family are in the Witness Protection Program. A man seeking revenge invades their town, and soon FBI agents arrive too. But what if his parent’s reasons for going into the program aren’t as innocent as they say?
