Ethan Hawke & More Join Jake Gyllenhaal’s Netflix Thriller THE GUILTY

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. 

And today the film added Ethan Hawke (First Reformed), Peter Sarsgaard (The Batman), Riley Keough (The Devil All The Time), and Paul Dano (The Batman).

Additional cast includes Byron Bowers (Concrete Cowboys), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Dolemite is My Name), David Castañeda (The Umbrella Academy), Christina Vidal (7 Days to Vegas), Adrian Martinez (Stumptown), Bill Burr (The King of Staten Island), Beau Knapp (The Good Lord Bird), and Edi Patterson (Knives Out).

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, Fuqua, Riva Marker, Scott Greenberg, Michel Litvak, Gary Michael Walters, David Litvak, Svetlana Metkina, and David Haring produce. Annie Marter, Gustav Moller, Lina Flint, Christian Mercuri, and Jon Oakes are exec producers.
