Casting Net: Jake Gyllenhaal (‘Nightcrawler’), Scarlett Johansson (‘Lucy’), and Julia Stiles (‘Out of the Dark’)
Over the last day or two, there have been a bunch of casting developments.
First off, Jake Gyllenhaal (End of Watch) was cast as a freelance crime journalist in Dan Gilroy’s feature film debut Nightcrawler. Gilroy is most known for his writing credits (including The Bourne Legacy). Filming begins in October with an unknown release date.
Next, Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers) adds to her busy schedule with Luc Besson’s Lucy. The plot sounds interesting (to say the least) since it’s about a drug mule who inadvertently takes the drug and turns into an ultra-badass.
Lastly, Julia Stiles (Silver Linings Playbook) was added to Lluis Quilez’s Out of the Dark. It is a supernatural thriller about a couple (it also stars Scott Speedman) that moves to Colombia and stars experiencing haunted things in their new home.
