In the film, Gyllenhaal will play John Prophet, a man conscripted by Germans near the end of World War II and subjected to scientific experiments that gave him superhuman strength. Prophet volenteers for the experiment near the end of World War II in order to feed his family. A bombing buries him alive and traps him underground for 20 years. When he awakens in 1965, the world has moved on and hid daughter resents him. KGF agents are now after him to create super-soldiers from his blood.
