Gyllenhaal is playing the lead in Antoine Fuqua's remake of Gustav Möller's 2018 Danish film
The first teaser for “The Guilty” unveiled the latest film from director Antoine Fuqua, screenwriter Nic Pizzolatto, and star Jake Gyllenhaal. It is a remake of the critically acclaimed 2018 Danish film of the same name.
Gyllenhall brought the remake rights after watching the film premiere at the Oscars where this was Denmark’s submission for Best International Feature.
“The film takes place over the course of a single morning in a 911 dispatch call center. Call operator Joe Baylor (Gyllenhaal) tries to save a caller in grave danger — but he soon discovers that nothing is as it seems, and facing the truth is the only way out,” reads the official synopsis.
The supporting cast also features Ethan Hawke, Riley Keough, Paul Dano, Peter Sarsgaard, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and Bill Burr. Screenwriter Pizzolatto and filmmaker Fuqua are best known for penning “True Detective” and directing “Training Day,” respectively.
Gyllenhaal had previously collaborated with Fuqua in the sports drama “Southpaw.”
“The Guilty” will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival this year September before receiving its wide release at Netflix and selected theaters on September 24. Watch the teaser below:
