The Guilty starring Jake Gyllenhaal, directed by Antoine Fuqua, remake of the Danish thriller of the same name, will become a Netflix original.
For a whopping 30 million dollars, Netflix has been awarded the rights to The Guilty, american remake with Jake Gyllenhaal of the Danish thriller of the same name, much appreciated at Sundance in 2018. The makeover will be signed by Antoine Fuqua and co-produced by Gyllenhaal himself with his Nine Stories. The valuable original feature film The Guilty – The Guilty by Gustav Möller (in streaming his Amazon Prime Video) took place in a single location and essentially saw one actor on stage, Jakob Cedergren: in the story, a police officer at the switchboard for emergencies he receives a call from a kidnapped woman. When the line falls, he does everything to somehow track down the victim, but soon the situation becomes more complicated: he is called to take very difficult decisions, while in the meantime trying to deal with the consequences of a past mistake …
The shooting of the new The Guilty should take place in November, in a sanitized set, with Gyllenhaal and Fuqua determined to be part of the group of artists and authors who want to restart the American audiovisual machine. Although The Guilty is productively simple to pack, the script and style will require every shred of his acting ability from Gyllenhaal and, as supporters of the original work, we are still curious to see him at work on that text.
