Jake Gyllenhaal Suits Up While Filming Bank Robbery Scene for 'Ambulance' Movie

Jake Gyllenhaal looks so suave while wearing a suit with a turtleneck sweater on the set of his new movie on Friday (January 22) in Los Angeles.

The 40-year-old actor was seen in costume while filming a scene for his upcoming action movie Ambulance at the L.A. Federal Bank & Trust. For some of the shots, he was carrying a machine gun and it looks like a bank robbery was happening.

It looks like co-star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II might be in the scene, but the actor was wearing a mask so it’s not clear.

We have more hot pics of Jake from earlier in the week. Those were the first ones to pop up of him on the set of the upcoming Michael Bay movie.

As of right now, details for Ambulance are being kept under wraps, but Deadline reports that the film is said to be in “the vein of the great action thrillers of the ’90s like Speed and Bay’s Bad Boys.”

The 40-year-old actor took to his Instagram on Tuesday (January 19) to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of Donnie Darko.

“Pulled out my script and some artifacts from Donnie Darko… It was released 20 years ago today. It’s a film that changed my life and my career and it’s been unreal to watch this story find afterlives with new audiences and new generations, and yet, what Donnie said to Roberta Sparrow is still true: ‘there is so much to look forward to,’” Jake wrote along with sharing a copy of his script along with notes and photos from working on the movie.

“Thank you to all the fans who’ve come up to me over the years with that confused look on their faces and asked me: ‘what the f**k is Donnie Darko about??’” Jake wrote. “Happy 20th Donnie! Let’s keep confusing people. Here’s to 20 more.”

Jake starred in the 2001 psychodrama alongside older sister Maggie Gyllenhaal, Holmes Osborne, Daveigh Chase, Mary McDonnell, Patrick Swayze, Drew Barrymore, Jena Malone and Seth Rogen.

Donnie Darko is available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Eiza Gonzalez Lands Lead Female Role in 'Ambulance' Opposite Jake Gyllenhaal

Eiza Gonzalez will be starring opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in the upcoming action-thriller Ambulance, which is being directed by Michael Bay.

The 30-year-old actress’ role in the movie is being kept under wraps and not much is known about the plot of the film either.

Deadline reports that the film is said to be in “the vein of the great action thrillers of the ’90s like Speed and Bay’s Bad Boys.” Also starring in the movie is Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who recently won an Emmy for his work on Watchmen.

Next up for Eiza are the Netflix movie I Care a Lot and the upcoming action pic Godzilla vs. Kong, which will be released on HBO Max and in theaters on the same date in 2021.

“Still buzzing!!!!! Thrilled to say the least,” Eiza said on her Instagram Stories along with a screencap of the casting announcement. She also shared a photo of the script on her Instagram feed.

Earlier this month, Eiza revealed the results of her allergy test and she’s allergic to so many things.

David Fincher Says Jake Gyllenhaal Was 'Very Distracted' While Filming 2007's 'Zodiac'

David Fincher is touching upon the tensions he and Jake Gyllenhaal faced while making 2007′s Zodiac.

In a former interview, Jake previously said that the famed director “paints with people” and “it’s tough to be a color.”

Fincher is now responding in a new interview, where he called their drama on set an “extremely simple” situation.

Jake was in the unenviable position of being very young and having a lot of people vie for his attention, while working for someone who does not allow you to take a day off,” David told the New York Times. “I believe you have to have everything out of your peripheral vision….I don’t think he’d ever been asked to concentrate on minutiae, and I think he was very distracted. He had a lot of people whispering that Jarhead was going to be this massive movie and put him in this other league, and every weekend he was being pulled to go to the Santa Barbara film festival and the Palm Springs film festival and the [expletive] Catalina film festival. And when he’d show up for work, he was very scattered.”

David continued, adding that the tension died down by the end of filming and Jake even apologized. “I don’t want to make excuses for my behavior. There are definitely times when I can be confrontational if I see someone slacking. People go through rough patches all the time. I do. So I try to be compassionate about it. But. It’s: Four. Hundred. Thousand. Dollars. A day. And we might not get a chance to come back and do it again,” he added.

“I tell actors all the time: I’m not going to cut around your hangover, I’m not going to cut around your dog dying, I’m not going to cut around the fact that you just fired your agent or your agent just fired you,” he added. “Once you get here, the only thing I care about is, Did we tell the story?”

David also just criticized one of the biggest films of the past few years.
