Netflix Nabs Jake Gyllenhaal’s THE GUILTY Remake For $30 Million

Training Day director Antoine Fuqua and Jake Gyllenhaal’s American remake of director Gustav Moller’s Danish thriller The Guilty has been snagged by Netflix. 

Netflix paid $30 million for worldwide distribution rights – and the film hasn’t even been shot yet. Speaking of which, production is set to begin by the end of the year.

Adapted by True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto, the remake takes place over the course of a single morning in a 911 dispatch call center. Call operator Joe Bayler (Gyllenhaal) tries to save a caller in grave danger—but he soon discovers that nothing is as it seems, and facing the truth is the only way out.

Gyllenhaal and Fuqua produce with Riva Marker, Scott Greenberg, Michel Litvak, Gary Michael Walters, David Litvak, Svetlana Metkina, and David Haring. Annie Marter, Gustav Moller, Lina Flint, Christian Mercuri, and Jon Oakes will be exec producers. The Guilty has secured COVID-19 insurance and will shoot in a single location following rigorous sanitation and safety protocols in L.A. in November.
