Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the film will have its Netflix release following its theatrical run
Netflix has dropped the first teaser for The Guilty, a star-studded crime thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal. Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the film is a remake of the hit 2018 Danish film of the same name directed by Gustav Möller.
The teaser for The Guilty, offers next to no visuals, but still finds a way to capture the attention of the views. The teaser features Gyllenhaal as an alarm dispatcher, as he answers a 911 call from a terrified victim, who has been abducted. As the call is abruptly disconnected, the call operator goes in search of more answers.
The film, which is written by Nic Pizzolatto, is helmed by Fuqua, who has previously collaborated with Gyllenhaal for the 2015 boxing drama, Southpaw. Fuqua is best known for having directed action movies such as Olympus Has Fallen and The Equalizer. The upcoming crime thriller also stars Ethan Hawke, Peter Sarsgaard, Riley Keough, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, Paul Dano and Bill Burr.
The Guilty will premiere at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival in September, after which it will get a limited theatre run. The film will stream on Netflix from October 1.
Gyllenhaal has other films lined up too; he will be seen alongside Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in Ambulance, an upcoming action thriller directed by Michael Bay. The actor has excelled in offbeat thrillers, with his role in the 2014 thriller, Nightcrawler, considered one of his best roles.
