Update2: The first shot from Time To Dance, the video Jake stars in for The Shoes:
Update: Did I say there was no Jake news? How about a new role?
Jake Gyllenhaal is in negotiations to star in Motor City, the Albert Hughes-directed drama for Dark Castle. Gyllenhaal, who most recently completed the David Ayer-directed drama End of Watch, will play an ex-army ranger named John Miller who gets framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Now, he is going after the man who framed him and stole his true love. Oscar-nominated Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy star Gary Oldman plays the villain and Amber Heard is the female lead. Joel Silver and Andrew Rona will produce for Dark Castle with Ethan Erwin and Douglas Urbanski exec producing. Warner Bros will distribute, as the studio did with Dark Castle’s hit Unknown. The film will begin shooting late spring in Berlin.
No new Jake news, so here are some tidbits gathered around the inter webs:
Looks like the Berlinale jury members are let their hair (and ties) down a bit after the ceremony. Also, Jake, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Mike Leigh and Anton Corbijn are all demons, apparently. Best Actress winner Rachel Mwanza seems fresh as a daisy!
That's an old picture of Jake shooting the fire at Manka's Inverness Lodge in December, 2006. The lodge is still in business, but the restaurant did not reopen.
Jarhead was on the other night, promoting a flood of hilarious tweets. And then I stumbled across this old French interview. I think it's been posted before, but it's worth another look:
I can't remember seeing this whole video before, but it's worth watching again. Loved seeing Jake in Australia.
Here's another video I don't remember seeing before. At least Jake did eventually get to Madison Square Garden with Jay-Z!
