Ready? Set. Go!



Those were the orders for many Torontonians or visitors to the city, as Jake Gyllenhaal began filming An Enemy, directed by Denis Villeneuve. Jake was papped on the set by pros and fans alike, and took some time to take photos with a few folks.







Jake was also seen last night outside Kultura Restaurant:







Pathé International was also ready to go in Cannes, closing distribution deals for An Enemy in several markets. Thanks to Gyllencrazy for the link to their slate:



Again thanks to GC, here's the poster in their Cannes office.

Looking forward to the "gripping, mysterious, psychological thriller" on set and in theaters.

I think it's Imagem Filmes from Brazil! yay
I like Imagem because they do everything for the films being shown in theaters.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, that's good to hear, Monica. I don't see a US deal; I can't remember if there's one in place already.

Cute story from a blogger who saw Jake on the street in NY.

Nothing like getting smiles and thank yous from Jake Gyllenhaal to brighten up an otherwise dreary Thursday night. #waitressinglife #terroni

I just have this feeling Enemy will debut first in Europe and it would be nice to premiere the movie in Portugal to honor Saramago.

I don't like those shades on Jake , they look feminine.

bobbyanna said...

Wonderful post, UV! Seeing Jake with fans is lovely! Great news about Pathe'. Hope we'll see more distribution deals lined up.

Those sunglasses are kind of ornate, Paula C., but I think I prefer them to the ones I saw in EoW.

I love Jake fan pics, he always looks so relaxed and comfortable unlike the pap pics.

Great news on the distribution deal!

Those glasses look like some designer glasses from the 70's, LOL!!

I see that he is back in NY :)

The film is listed as Canadian on IMDB. Villeneuve is a French-Canadian from Montreal. Alliance is distributing for Canada, so possible the film will likely premiere in Canada. But it is possible they will also do a European premieres too.

UltraViolet said...

Added a newer picture from the Pathe office in Cannes, as well as a "poster" with Jakes name and the title. The film will get a real poster eventually, but I love that shot they chose of Jake. They seem to know what they have in him :)

It does make me want to see Jake in a movie where he plays a sophisticated, international player.

It is nice to see Jake with fans, although some went to the set and didn't get to see him. The crew told them Jake had been working 15 hours and didn't want to see anyone. And the fans who had their photo taken with Jake said he was reluctant. But he did smile!

Chica, have you seen a NY Tweet? I assumed Jake was filming again today. I haven't been to twitter yet this morning.

UltraViolet said...

Oh, Paula, I'm with you on the sunglasses. They are awful, like something an old lady would wear. I am hoping there's a point to them.

Anonymous said...

what wonderful pics of Jake. It's great that he posed with some fans.

I am a little confused. They can start promoting the movie while they are filming (in Cannes) and look for distributors? I wasn't sure at what point they started doing that for a movie

Always a pleasure to share Jake news with you, UV ;-) As for those shades dear lord, they're really ugly. At first I thought there was a camera hidden there. Anyway, looks like Jake will attend the Cosmopolis premiere in Toronto on June 4

UltraViolet said...

Not sure that story is saying Jake will be at the premiere. I think the writer mens Jake, RP and SG will all be in the city at the same time. It would be nice for Jake to go to his new co-star's premiere, though!

Lily, some independent movies have to wait until later to get a deal. And this one still doesn't have a US distributor. But some films can be sold on the pedigree of the main participants: cast and/or director. Or on the script.

Also, chica, I think you might have been referring to that blog I posted. That account was from last week.

Monica said...

I was thinking about it.

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

I love the choice of pic of Jake for the "unofficial" poster!

Jake and Cannes, YES!!! I hope he does go to the premiere.

Chica said...

Whoops! That NY Jake sighting on that blog was from last week, my bad UV!

It would be nice for Jake to go to the premiere, great news that he will be in Cannes.

Anonymous said...

I thought you were referring to the Cosmopolis premiere happening in Toronto, not Cannes. The one in Cannes already happened.

Chica said...

Another whoops from me! It would be cool if he atteneded the Toronto premiere of Cosmopolis.

I saw this last night, plus another tweet of Jake in Washington Square, but wasn't sure. I guess he is back for the weekend:

I had a really good time. c: We went to a Movie Musium place that was really fun. Then did some shopping, went to a really cool Asian market store thing.

After that we headed over to Washington Square Park. There was this guy, and I thought he really was cute.. so I walked by all awkward…

THEN! Me, my sister, mom and my friends mom all stopped walking and looked at each other.

We had just walked by Jake Gyllenhaal, and he smiled at us!

He was sitting with some lady xD

True story!

We went back a little later to see if he was there to get a picture but he was gone. :p

The airport photos are nice.

I hope The Enemy picks up more distribution deals at Cannes, especially in the US of course.

Those sunglasses are butt fugly but I'm sure there is a real good reason that his character is wearing them!

Tweety said...

Thnaks for all the news reqarding Thw Enemy, I'm a bit distressed that it doesn't have a US distributor yet.

The fan photos are fantastic, they are so lucky!!

LOL!!:

Michelle Said‏@splendourific

Ate brunch next to Jake Gyllenhaal at Prune today. He had to wait forever in the heat just like everyone else. Stars, they're just like us!

Mary said...

Im a little bit worried too Tweety thats theres not a US distributor yet I dont think the UK has one either,I cant imagine a Jake film not opening in the US but it is still early.

Daniela said...

Hi!
What a lucky these girls, not only because they have seen him but for getting a photo

That second picture posted on the blog is so cute

Anonymous said...

what lucky girls to not only see Jake at the airport but get pics with him. He seemed happy to do it too. I never got lucky like that at the airport.

I do hope we hear about a US distributor soon

Lily

UltraViolet said...

Is Jake back in Toronto already?

From a tweeter earlier:

Ran into Jake Gyllenhaal today. Super cool guy.

I hate you!! Kidding. I love him.

Haha he was pretty awesome.

Mary said...

Wow that sure was a quick trip maybe their are filming over the weekend or sunday and Monday as Memorial holidays is only a US holiday.

Anonymous said...

I thought Jake would have off for the holiday. Well it's a short trip from NY to Toronto about an hour and a half.

have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone (who celebrates)

Wow, go to a friend's pool for the day and you miss a lot of tweets! It was a beautiful day here. Poor Jake, having to work on Sunday! Some flavor of the day:

Jake Gyllenhaal just asked me why I wasn't dancing while in line at a restaurant. Then he smiled and I almost died. #truestory #loveTO

Pretty much really good friends with Jake Gyllenhaal after today. Tweet me your questions and ill see if I can get you guys some answers.

A not-so-nice report from the set.

We had that tweet of the person saying how aggressive the paps can be, so there are two sides. But I hope Jake can lighten up. It doesn't seem like the attention is going away.
