Jake Gyllenhaal is following up his dramatic role in The Guilty with another drama flick.

Deadline reports that the 40-year-old actor is attached to star in Prophet.

Based on the Image comic book from Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, the movie is expected to launch a new franchise.

Extraction‘s Sam Hargrave will be behind the camera for the film.

“It’s been a goal of ours to work with Jake and Sam for quite some time, so we’re very excited to finally be collaborating with them on this unique, action-packed genre film,” Studio 8’s Jeff Robinov shared with the site. “I’m looking forward to seeing what they envision for bringing this story to life – a story we’re sure will stand out in the comic book world as a powerful, emotionally charged and visually distinctive film.”
