Actor and self-identified pungent man Jake Gyllenhaal stars within the official trailer for Netflix’s upcoming thriller The Responsible, primarily based on the Danish thriller of the identical title. The extreme, minimalist teaser incorporates a transcript of a 911 name during which Gyllenhaal’s operator tries to assist a mom who’s been kidnapped. The unique Danish movie premiered again in 2018 and gained that 12 months’s Sundance Viewers Award and Grand Jury Prize, along with being Denmark’s entry into the International-Language Oscar class. Gyllenhaal has been a fan of the movie since its premiere, even moderating a Q&A with director Gustav Möller earlier than finally snagging the movie rights.
Vulture spoke with Möller shortly earlier than The Responsible’s unique theatrical launch, and when requested about the potential of a Hollywood adaptation, Möller mentioned, “I am open to a new take on it. I think it would actually be interesting to see it from all over the world.” Ethan Hawke, Riley Keough, Paul Dano, Peter Sarsgaard, Da’Vine Pleasure Randolph, and Invoice Burr star alongside Gyllenhaal within the upcoming movie, which was written by True Detective’s Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Antoine Fuqua (Southpaw, The Magnificent Seven). The Responsible premieres on Netflix on October 1.
