The film is described as a horror-thriller that follows big-money artists and mega-collectors who pay a high price when art collides with commerce.
The new project, which is now untitled, is said to follow big-money artists and collectors who pay a high price when things go wrong.
As well the already revealed names of Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo, British actress Zawe Ashton, Stranger Things breakout Natalia Dyer, Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge, Tony Award victor Daveed Diggs, Academy Award nominee Toni Collette, Academy Award nominee John Malkovich and Billy Magnussen have signed up for the upcoming horror-thriller.
The team of Gilroy, Gyllenhaal and Russo are reunited on the picture after first coming together on Gilroy's directorial debut in Nightcrawler. Gilroy's follow-up Roman Israel, Esq. starring Denzel Washington, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival (TIFF) last September but didn't connect either with critics or audiences, even though Denzel received an Oscar nomination for the role. She's also repped by WME and One Entertainment.
Dyer is best known as Nancy on Netflix's hit series "Stranger Things" and is expected to return to the role for Season 3.
Netflix's mystery Dan Gilroy/Jake Gyllenhaal horror thriller is in the midst of production in Los Angeles, expecting a relatively quick turnover with a debut on the streaming platform planned for later in 2018. The cast has also gained its share of up-and-comers, such as Hamilton actor Daveed Diggs (who also fielded a recurring role in Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Zawe Ashton (who also appeared in the Gyllenhaal-starrer, Nocturnal Animals) and Tom Sturridge, who appeared in last year's Frankenstein author biopic, Mary Shelley. Collette is repped by CAA and United Management.
