Jake Gyllenhaal Takes to Craiglist in First Preview for Nightcrawler

21 July 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

After co-writing the franchise-reboot The Bourne Legacy to great success, Dan Gilroy decided to take a leaf out of his brother Tony’s book and turn to directing, making Nightcrawler his next priority.

Jake Gyllenhaal came on board early last year, and it wasn’t long before the independent thriller kicked off production.

Continuing in the indie vein, Open Road has taken to Craiglist to launch the first teaser preview of the film, which stars Gyllenhaal as a driven young man who discovers the nocturnal world of La freelance crime journalism.

The ad describes him as a hard worker seeking employment:

My name is Louis Bloom. I’m looking for full-time employment. No job too big or too small. I have my own car and phone. Persistent, punctual, polite and hardworking. Will work nights.

Please take a look at my video resume

Gyllenhaal is joined by Riz Ahmed, Bill Paxton, »

Jake Gyllenhaal Gaunt And Desperate In Nightcrawler Teaser

21 July 2014 5:17 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It can be hard out there in the job market nowadays. Maybe you need something to help you stand out to potential employers. Why not a video résumé? That's what Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal), the protagonist of the upcoming indie drama Nightcrawler is trying in the odd bit of viral marketing above. Tipped by The Playlist, Nightcrawler's trailer is angling to be a sly bit of advertisement. The name of the movie it's from is never presented, not in the title, Youtube user name or the video itself. The title is "Hard Worker Seeking Employment." The user name is that of the character, Louis Bloom. And the caption below the video reads only "My video resume." So, did it work? Nightcrawler marks the directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, co-writer of Tarsem Singh's The Fall and Tony Gilroy's The Bourne Legacy. The screenplay is Dan Gilroy's own, »

Watch: A Gaunt & Desperate Jake Gyllenhaal In A Viral Teaser For ‘Nightcrawler’

20 July 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You may remember earlier this year seeing a rather rail-thin Jake Gyllenhaal at red carpets and other public appearances. You may also remember reports that the actor had gone to the hospital because he had badly cut his hand with glass after punching a mirror. No, this wasn’t the sign of Hollywood excess or a troubled actor in a downward spiral— it was all for a role in a new movie. Titled “Nightcrawler,” the crime thriller is the directorial debut of screenwriter Dan Gilroy, the writer of “Freejack” and “Chasers,” the co-writer of "The Bourne Legacy" and brother of Tony Gilroy (the screenwriter behind the ‘Bourne’ series, “Michael Clayton” among many others). “Nightcrawler” is about an out of work man (Gyllenhaal) who man stumbles upon the underground world of L.A. freelance crime journalism. A new viral clip has emerged and it hints at the desperation in unemployment that »

Watch: Jake Gyllenhaal Needs a Job in Viral Trailer for 'Nightcrawler'

19 July 2014 11:12 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Dan Gilroy, writer of The Bourne Legacy and Real Steel as well as brother to Tony Gilroy, is making his directorial debut with Nightcrawler, a crime drama, which he also wrote, starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a driven young man who finds a home in the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. Gyllenhaal reportedly lost 20 pounds for the role. In an interesting marketing move, Open Road Films has gone and opened a YouTube account under Gyllenhaal's character's name, Louis Bloom, as well as submit a "job wanted" listing on Craigslist, all pointing to the first viral trailer for the film that would appear to at least feature some footage from the film, but it's unclear just how much may be from the film and how much was shot specifically for this trailer. It's widely expected Nightcrawler will make an appearance at at least one, if not several of »

Matt Damon Will Not Return in 'The Bourne Legacy' Sequel

20 June 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, a report surfaced that Matt Damon, who played Jason Bourne in Universal Pictures' action trilogy The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, will reprise his popular role in the studio's sequel to The Bourne Legacy. Producer Frank Marshall has now debunked that report, stating that the decision to move the sequel from August 2015 to July 2016 was not because Matt Damon is coming back, but because the script is still not ready yet. Here's what the producer had to say in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, confirming that the story centers on Aaron Cross, played by Jeremy Renner in 2012's The Bourne Legacy.

"It's simply not true. [Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago. I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It's a summer movie, »

Matt Damon May Return as Jason Bourne in 'The Bourne Legacy' Sequel

20 June 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Universal Pictures announced that its sequel to 2012's action-thriller The Bourne Legacy has been shifted from a August 14, 2015 release to July 15, 2016, reportedly to make room for the studio's biopic Straight Outta Compton which took the August 14, 2015 slot. An unconfirmed report from Latino-Review claims the real reason for the delay is that Matt Damon has finally agreed to reprise his role as Jason Bourne.

It isn't clear how director Justin Lin managed to convince Matt Damon to come back, especially since the actor has repeatedly stated in the past that he will only return to the franchise if The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass is back at the helm. The actor did reveal last month that he is open to returning, if he and Paul Greengrass can find a story they like, even suggesting that fans submit their own stories to Universal Pictures.

Black List Writer Tapped To Rewrite Bourne 5

9 May 2014 2:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jeremy Renner and Rachel Weisz are expected to return for the next entry in Universal’s popular Bourne series, but just about everything else is changing for the untitled follow-up to 2012′s The Bourne Legacy. Tony Gilroy, who has been with the series since The Bourne Identity, is no longer involved, and it’s highly unlikely that either director Paul Greengrass or star Matt Damon will return in the near future.

Instead, Fast & Furious 6 helmer Justin Lin was brought in last year to direct Bourne 5, and Sherlock Holmes scribe Anthony Peckham took over script-writing duties. However, now we’re hearing that Universal has nominated Andrew Baldwin, a Black List scribe (for his unproduced Western The West is Dead) once attached to pen the now-dead Logan’s Run reboot, to rewrite the script.

That’s not great news, considering the film is currently set for release next summer and is »

‘Bourne 5′ Gets Former ‘Logan’s Run’ Screenwriter

9 May 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman began a new age of covert agent movies with 2002′s The Bourne Identity. In the wake of the increasingly-silly Pierce Brosnan-era James Bond films, Liman’s initial go at the character – created by novelist Robert Ludlum – starred Matt Damon as an amnesiac special operative, who exploree his unexpected skill-set while attempting to regain his life and identity. Damon went on to headline two blockbuster sequels – Supremacy and Ultimatum - both directed by Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips), which eschewed Identity‘s sense of heightened reality for a “gritty” and “grounded” tone augmented by Greengrass’ patented shaky-cam.

All three installments were written by Michael Clayton writer-director Tony Gilroy, who stepped in to helm the Damon-less sequel/reboot/spinoff The Bourne Legacy, which starred Jeremy Renner as a genetically-enhanced renegade super spy ...

Bourne 5 Hires A New Screenwriter, Retains Justin Lin

9 May 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Justin Lin brought new life to the Fast and Furious franchise during his tenure as director. Since his departure after the latest entry, Fast and Furious 6, he's been looking to find some new cinematic ground to cover. He almost had it with his previous involvement in the Terminator franchise. Instead, he'll continue to help revive the Bourne franchise, only with a new writer to help him take things in a fresh direction. The Hollywood Reporter announced that Lin remains attached to direct the new sequel to The Bourne Legacy, with relative newcomer Andrew Baldwin attached for the film's writing duties. This is a far cry from previous history, where franchise veteran Tony Gilroy wrote and directed the 2012 introduction to Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross character. Gilroy's double duty may have led to some of the film's more fatal flaws, as he was previously being held in check by director Paul Greengrass, »

New writer reworking Bourne Legacy sequel

8 May 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bourne 5 is due in cinemas next summer - but the script for Jeremy Renner's next adventure still needs work...


Universal has set a release date of August 2015 for the fifth chapter in its Bourne franchise, with this one set to be the second to focus on Jeremy Renner's character of Aaron Cross. There will be no Matt Damon and no Jason Bourne again.

Given how disappointing The Bourne Legacy was, it's not much of a surprise that things are being shaken up. Tony Gilroy isn't returning to direct, with Justin Lin - yesterday linked with a Lethal Weapon reboot - calling the shots this time around.

And now we hear that a new writer has come on board the project to rework the screenplay. Andrew Baldwin, who has previously worked on the lost in development hell Logan's Run remake, has been hired. He'll set to work building »

‘The Bourne Legacy’ Sequel Hires Another Writer, ‘Logan’s Run’ Remake Scribe

8 May 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As we just noted the other day, the ‘Bourne’ franchise direction is moving in a very different direction from its original pedigree. Not only are Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass long gone, but so is the series writing architect Tony Gilroy. “The Bourne Legacy” offshoot starring Jeremy Renner wasn’t quite the immense hit that Universal wanted and so the studio went another way. Instead they totally changed gears and went with Justin Lin of “Fast & Furious 6” as the director and Anthony Peckham (“Sherlock Holmes”) as the screenwriter. That’s as far as you can get from the aforementioned three creative principals that made the series the worldwide hit that it was. And so there’s good news and there’s bad news. Still dated for an August 14, 2015 release (for now anyhow), the fifth untitled ‘Bourne’ film has hired another writer to pen the script. That’s slightly bad »

Andrew Baldwin to Write the Newest Bourne Film

8 May 2014 3:27 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

News on the follow-up to Universal's The Bourne Legacy has been trickling out over the last year, but we do know that Justin Lin will be at the helm directing from an Anthony Peckham script.  While Peckham's work makes this the first Bourne film not scripted by Tony Gilroy, another screenwriter has come on board in the person of Andrew Baldwin.  Unfortunately, we don't have any plot details at the moment.  As for Baldwin, he's previously worked on Warners’ Logan’s Run remake and also wrote Bastille Day, an original thriller that has Idris Elba attached as one of the leads.  The Bourne Legacy sequel is set for an August 14, 2015 release date.

Matt Damon, The Boy Who Cried Jason Bourne (Again)

5 May 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Never say never, never say die. If you’re keeping score like we have—or feel obligated to do so—you’ll know Matt Damon keeps playing with our heart and toying with our emotions. The actor has essentially said, Jason Bourne is done, the character has finished his arc, and he’s even talked smack about the screenwriter Tony Gilroy and then quickly retracted it. When Paul Greengrass walked away from the series after “The Bourne Ultimatum,” Damon walked too. But because he’s a nice guy and because the media keeps asking, Damon has been far less resolute about the fate of Jason Bourne returning to the series as played by Matt Damon. He’s basically left the ball in Paul Greengrass’ court and said, if he does it, I’ll do it (though knowing fully well that he and Greengrass already tried to make a fourth ‘Jason »

Only Lovers Left Alive’s Tilda Swinton talks Playing a Vampire, Working with Tom Hiddleston

10 April 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If the guy from the Dos Equis commericals is The Most Interesting Man In The World, it’s possible that Tilda Swinton is The Most Interesting Woman – though she has the advantage since she’s real, and so are her accomplishments. Taleted, thoughtful and endlessly idiosyncratic, Swinton has been crafting indelible characters on film since the late 1980s, when she worked with late director Derek Jarman, and slowly moved into more mainstream projects where her natural singularity created distinctive, memorable characters and performances. And since 2005, she has collaborated closely with equally unique filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, in whose latest project, Only Lovers Left Alive, she plays Eve, an anachonristic – and yet timeless – vampire in a long-term, and long-distance relationship with her equally immortal partner Adam (Tom Hiddleston).

Swinton recently spoke to press at the film’s Los Angeles press day, where she unpacked the film’s themes – and its impact on »

Watch: 30-Minute Screenwriting Lecture With 'Bourne' Series & 'Michael Clayton' Writer Tony Gilroy

9 April 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With no more skin in the "Bourne" game—he's decidedly not involved with Justin Lin's "Bourne 5" coming next summer—Tony Gilroy has some time on his hands and what better way to spend that free time than to talk screenwriting with some BAFTA members. The half-hour long lecture finds Gilroy shedding light on his "entire Kama Sutra of Hollywood experience," joking about how he's "assumed both positions as a screenwriter." The talk finds the "Michael Clayton" writer-director in his usual completely honest mode. Essentially, any time with a writer of Gilroy's stature is definitely something you'll want to check out. Whether you're a fan of the filmmaker or just wanting to learn more about the industry, this lecture—part of BAFTA's Screenwriters Lecture series—is well worth a look. Watch it below. »
