Dan Gilroy & Jake Gyllenhaal's Netflix Film Sets Ensemble Cast

A pretty impressive cast list has been announced for the upcoming as-yet-untitled Dan Gilroy and Jake Gyllenhaal Netflix film. From what we hear, the film is actually a horror movie but detailed plot details are being kept well under-wraps.

For Gilroy, Gyllenhaal, and Russo, this marks a reunion after teaming up on Gilroy's directorial debut "Nightcrawler", which earned Gilroy an Oscar nomination for best original screenplay. Set to join Gyllenhaal and Russo is Zawe Ashton (Nocturnal Animals), Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler in Netflix's Stranger Things), Tom Sturridge (On the Road, Far from the Madding Crowd), Daveed Diggs (The Get-Down, Wonder), Aussie Oscar nominee Toni Collette and two-time Oscar nominee John Malkovich.

Now, as production gets started, the thriller, which reunites Gyllenhaal with Dan Gilroy, the director of his 2014 Oscar-nominated crime drama vehicle, Nightcrawler, has a full ensemble to showcase. Gilroy's follow-up Roman Israel, Esq. starring Denzel Washington, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival (TIFF) last September but didn't connect either with critics or audiences, even though Denzel received an Oscar nomination for the role. He is repped by WME.

Also with WME Sturridge was nominated for his role in the Broadway play Orphans and he appears in the upcoming Journey's End (out Friday) and the drama Mary Shelley, which also premiered at TIFF a year ago. She is repped by APA, Link and Troika.

Stranger Things starlet Natalia Dyer, best known as Nancy Meyers on the smash series, has been cast in the movie - an addition that's clearly created to tap into the streaming giant's most successful original offering. She is repped by WME and One Entertainment. Collette is repped by CAA and United Management. While details on the story are still a bit vague, Gilroy did reveal late a year ago that the still-untitled film would have "a Robert Altman-like large ensemble cast", with a similar tone to The Player.
