Jake Gyllenhaal Signs on to Star in Danish Thriller 'The Guilty' Remake

Jake Gyllenhaal is set to star in the remake of Danish thriller The Guilty.

The 37-year-old actor joins the Oscar entry film, which won the world cinema audience award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

“We saw The Guilty at Sundance and were blown away. Möller’s film masterfully weaves tension into an acute character study, and is exactly the kind of material that Nine Stories is excited to develop. We are honored to be able to adapt it for American audiences alongside Bold Films,” Jake and Nine Stories partner Riva Marker said in a statement.

The film follows a police officer under investigation, who’s demoted to desk work at an emergency call center. When he receives a terrified phone call from a kidnapped woman, he must battle his internal demons in order to save her.
