Jake Gyllenhaal confirmed for An Enemy - shooting to begin late May

A brief post this evening to bring the confirmation that Jake Gyllenhaal is all aboard An Enemy. In fact, as he's playing both of the film's lead roles, he's signed on twice. Whether he'll need two trailers and two Retouchers (remember the Brothers' Retoucher discussion?) is another matter. Mr Will W of Toronto reports that My Enemy's director Denis Villeneuve is in town to do prep for the movie. Filming, we hear, starts in late May and will wrap in mid July. Fingers crossed that with that speed it won't be too long before we can see both Jakes for ourselves. This seems like as good a time as any to repost one of my own pictures that I took of Jake in Toronto back in 2007.

Finally!! Has somebody opened a bottle of champagne yet? Otherwise here goes... *plop!
This film better be as thrilling as the road to the confirmation that Jake is in it. ;) But it sounds great already! Just another month and the web will be abuzz with pictures, I hope.

I've always LOVED that picture you took of Jake in Toronto WDW - good times, huh?!

Here's to more good times in 2012!

Have a good week all...I hope it's as full of good news (possible and confirmed) as this one was.

Well like we already didn't know that Jake was on board for this movie, but it's nice to make it official. I'm guessing it will be released sometime next year. I just wish Jake had more stuff lined up.
