MONTREAL — A new Denis Villeneuve film starring Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal is one of nine new feature films to receive funding from Telefilm Canada.
The federal agency has allocated a total of $14 million in funding to the projects, which include eight English films and one French.
Villeneuve’s An Enemy, based on Jose Saramago’s novel The Double, tells the story of a teacher who discovers he has a double and seeks out the man.
And while Jake is busy crossing streets and crashing cars…
Spent the other night on a camera car with Jake Gyllenhaal doing 70km/h along Lakeshore shooting a car crash sequence.
…a reminder for all of you Torontonians: the WorldwideShortFilmFest starts tomorrow and The Shoes “Time to Dance” AMAZING video featuring our very own Jake is among the contenders of the Award for Best Short Music Video.Can you imagine watching Jake slaughtering hipsters on a big screen?? I wouldn’t want to miss it if I were in your shoes (pun intended). It’s scheduled for Friday, June 6 and after the screening you can also join the after party
I very much doubt Jake will attend either but who knows, if he’s not too tired from filming and decides to spend a weekend in Toronto instead of NY … One can hope, right?
Last but not least, a reminder for all of you dear Queen’s Subjects in England: don’t miss Bear Grylls’ BORN SURVIVOR on Discovery tonight, 9pm sharp. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about, don’t you?
Worth re-listening to Bear talk about Jake in this lovely interview
P.S. Adam is definitely my favorite Jake. I know, I’ve said this before.
P.P.S. I’ll probably say it again.
