Jake Gyllenhaal is set to star in and produce an upcoming heist thriller film, Cut & Run. Cut & Run is about a group of thieves who use speedboats to rob super-yachts. However, their heisting career takes a turn when they steal the wrong thing from the wrong group of people.
Gyllenhaal will also produce the film under the Nine Stories banner alongside New Republic Pictures. New Republic won the rights to the film written by John Glenn (Law Abiding Citizen, Clash of the Titans) following a bidding war between several potential buyers. New Republic’s Brian Oliver and Bradley Fischer will join Gyllenhaal and Glenn as producers.
New Republic Pictures and Nine Stories were first confirmed to team up in a first-look deal and partnership for Oblivion Song, a feature film adaptation of Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici’s graphic novel. The production companies’ partnership will first be tested, however, by Ambulance, which is set to release on April 8, 2022. Both Ambulance and Oblivion Song will star Gyllenhaal as well.
