After ‘Enemy’ and ‘Prisoners,’ Denis Villeneuve and Jake Gyllenhaal are reuniting for their third project

French-Canadanian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve has recently shared his wish to return to making smaller films after working in large-scale productions like Blade Runner 2049 and his upcoming, much-anticipated Dune Adaptation.

The filmmaker collaborated with Jake Gyllenhaal in two back to back films in 2013, Prisoners and Enemy. The star has confirmed in the ‘Team Deakins’ podcast that he is working on a new project with Villeneuve.

In Prisoners Gyllenhaal starred as the lead detective in a missing children case. In Enemy, the actor played a dull college history professor whose world changes after he finds his doppelganger. Both films have been noted for their brilliant sense of dread and sure-handed direction.

The actor said about the making of Enemy, "Denis told me he had to make this movie and he didn’t know why. I just remember Denis saying, ‘I have to make this movie and I have to make it with you. I can find someone else to do it but I can’t get you out of my mind to do it,"

He added, “That’s very rare…Denis, to this day, there is something we are working on now and he just writes me, ‘I can’t wait to work with you again.’ And I feel the same way. There are these people you find in your life where you just have these connections. That began that connection.”

Villeneuve’s Dune is slated for release on December 18.
