'Nightcrawler' Director Sets All-Star Cast for Netflix Horror Movie

'Nightcrawler' Director Sets All-Star Cast for Netflix Horror Movie

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. His untitled Netflix film just announced its primary and supporting cast, and it's more than enough reason to get excited, anchored by the return of Rene Russo and Jake Gyllenhaal, who had an wonderful turn as a deranged, unethical photographer in Nightcrawler.

Gilroy is also reuniting with his Nightcrawler producer Jennifer Fox for this film with Betsy Danbury serving as exec. producer.

The new project, which is now untitled, is said to follow big-money artists and collectors who pay a high price when things go wrong.

Netflix's mystery Dan Gilroy/Jake Gyllenhaal horror thriller is in the midst of production in Los Angeles, expecting a relatively quick turnover with a debut on the streaming platform planned for later in 2018.

It's certainly a strong cast, hopefully boding well for Gilroy's follow-up to the nearly buzz-less Denzel Washington starrer Roman J. Israel, Esq. Her most recent credits include the Showtime series "Guerrilla" and "Nocturnal Animals", which also starred Gyllenhaal. She's also repped by WME and One Entertainment.

Sturridge is best known for his Tony-nominated role in "Orphans".

Dyer played the role of Nancy on the hit Netflix series Strangers Things and should return for Season 3.

Collette, who never puts in a bad performance in any of her projects stars in the Sundance Film Festival favourite Hereditary which has just been bought by A24 and is scheduled for a Summer 2018 release. She is repped by CAA and United Management.

The mystery Netflix film, which is to be written and directed by Gilroy, while headlined by Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo, may not have a title to announce, but its revealed cast members not only tout a bit of Netflix corporate synergy, but carry some legitimately impressive names, according to Variety.
