Jake Gyllenhaal Replacing Dominic Cooper in 'Motor City'?

UPDATE: Deadline reports that Jake is no longer attached to the project due to scheduling conflicts.

Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to star in the thriller Motor City, opposite Gary Oldman and Amber Heard.

The 31-year-old actor would replace Dominic Cooper, “who was previously cast but exited due to a scheduling conflict” with his other project, Cities, according to THR.

The movie centers around an ex-Army Ranger (Gyllenhaal) who is framed and sent to prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

He later gets revenge to get back the woman he loves. Gary is set to play the villain, while Amber takes on the female lead role.

Production on Motor City is slated to begin this May in Berlin.

# 6

I don’t remember seeing Amber before. Certainly Jake’s type, he likes blonds It’s nice to finally hear about a new project through his new agent WME

# 7

@madmax: I doubt she’s his type, she’s dating a girl.

# 8

Jake has dropped out of Motor City it’s a shame. I hope we hear about a new project soon

# 9

why? what else does he have going on?

Jake might be asked to postpone the filming and the producers said no, I think he asked for a postponement for good reason
For those unaware EOW will premiere on September 28 in the U.S., I hope that from now on disclosure Jake is already involved in another project

With Gary Oldman?!? . I love this actor. I had saw a very beautiful film with him called ” Immortal beloved” about life of Beethoven. Super!

Gyllenhaal was never set for this film. There were talks. He was not available on the dates. That’s it. I am amazed at all the crazy and inaccurate reportage on this one. If anyone had asked at any point, I would have been happy to tell them!
