Jake Gyllenhaal has confirmed his commitment to indie feature film, The Sisters Brothers, which is based on the Patrick DeWitt novel of the same name and narrates the story of two brothers in 1851 Oregon hunting down a prospector that robbed their boss.
Gyllenhaal will join Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly on the cast list for the noir Western film and work under director, Jacques Audiard. Because Reilly obtained the rights to the book for the movie in the first place, he will be producing the film, alongside Michael De Luca, Rosa Attrab and Alison Dickey.
The Sisters Brothers is Audiard’s first directorial effort since Dheepan in 2015, which premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and won him a Palme d’Or. This will be his first film shot completely in English.
The Sisters Brothers is set to start production sometime this summer.
