Jake Gyllenhaal to star in and produce Welcome to Vienna
The actor will be bankrolling and featuring in the upcoming film adaptation of the book To Die in Vienna
Actor Jake Gyllenhaal will produce and act in Welcome to Vienna, an adaptation of author Kevin Wignall's upcoming book To Die in Vienna.
Jake will essay Freddie, a civilian surveillance contractor who interrupts a break-in at his apartment. The intruder escapes, but then comes back and tries to kill Freddie, making the American contractor a hunted man. Freddie's only hope for survival is that his pursuer doesn't know the past he's running away from.
The actor is also set to appear alongside Rene Russo in an untitled Netflix horror-thriller to be directed by Dan Gilroy. The project will be based on big-money artistes and mega-collectors.
Kevin Wignall's novel To Die in Vienna will be published in June.
