Paul Dano Joins the Prisioners
Talk about moving fast. It seems as if the long talked about flick Prisoners has gone from development hell to rapidly approaching the fast track as even more casting news has come our way.
According to Variety, Paul Dano has come on board to join Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal in Alcon Entertainment's Prisoners which also stars Melissa Leo with Denis Villeneuve helming.
Written by Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband), the story revolves around a small-town carpenter named Keller (Jackman) whose young daughter and her best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands but in the process runs up against Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), a hotshot cop with confidence to burn, assigned to the case.
Production is scheduled to begin in early 2013. Alcon is targeting a fall 2013 release through its output deal with Warner Bros.
