Jake Gyllenhaal is attached to star in New Republic’s upcoming heist thriller film, Cut and Run.
Variety reports that the picture, written by John Glenn, follows a group of thieves working to rob super-yachts. Things start to take a turn for the worse when they steal the wrong thing from the wrong people.
The latter studio currently holds a first-look deal with Gyllenhaal’s production company and secured the rights to this most recent project following a bidding war.
Among his most well-known titles are 2004’s Brokeback Mountain, Prisoners and Nightcrawler. Most recently, he reprised the role of Mysterio in Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, and is next due to feature in Michael Bay’s upcoming thriller, Ambulance.
