Bold Films is financing “Nightcrawler,” which begins shooting Oct. 6 in Los Angeles in Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut. Gyllenhaal plays a man who discovers the nocturnal world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles. “We really had no choice but to shoot this in Los Angeles, because it’s set in L.A and it’s a quintessentially Los Angeles kind of project in that the city is very much a character in the movie,” said producer David Lancaster. “It’s a similar situation to ‘Drive,’ where it’s essential to set the movie in L.A. And we also got the tax credit.” Source: variety.com

Junket interview with Jake Gyllenhaal (Loki) on "Prisoners".
Sunday, September 15, 2013
Aside from the film itself he talks about his co-star and friend, Heath Ledger, and how his death "...felt like losing a family member, and it still does to this day."
After the critical and commercial success of "Brokeback Mountain" there came the inevitable questioning of Gyllenhaal's sexuality, since he plays a gay cowboy in the film. Gyllenhaal commented on the rumors during his talk with Lipton, and said, "It's a huge compliment," but what he prefers is "tits and ass."
Since his "Brokeback" days he has been romantically linked to a number of Hollywood starlets such as Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift.
His "Inside the Actor's Studio" appearance coincides with the release of his upcoming movie "Prisoners" which co-stars Hugh Jackman and is already receiving Oscar talk for multiple categories, including nominations for the cast. Source: www.huffingtonpost.com

Matt Damon ("Bewildered Video")
Directed by indie stalwart John Dahl and written by David Levien and Brian Koppelman (the duo who went on to write "Ocean's Thirteen" for Steven Soderbergh, among other films), "Rounders" was the No. 1 movie in North American during its opening weekend, with $8.4 million in ticket sales. Overall, however, it was a disappointment for the studio, earning only $22.9 million during its initial theatrical run.

Prisoners co-star Hugh Jackman on Jake: “What always impressed me about Jake was his steadfast commitment to connection, His work ethic is like mine: he loves to explore, dig and extract every ounce of depth in a scene. He has the courage to follow his instincts and helps create an atmosphere where anything is possible. He is open, always striving for truth and complexity. What he has pulled off in Prisoners is extraordinary.” Source: vman.com
Matt Damon attended Cambridge Rindge and Latin School where he was proudly a disciplined student. But his first two years was “terrifying” because of his shortness during that time. Though he did well at school, there were lonely periods in his adolescence. He has described feeling “such pain in wanting to belong somewhere and not belonging.” When he was 14, he dreamed of going to the Yale School of Drama to become an actor, but he ended up at Harvard instead. He found joy in performing as an actor in some high school theater productions, citing his drama teacher at Rindge and Latin, Gerry Speca, as an artistic influence. After high school, Matt was accepted into Harvard University as an English major in the fall of 1988. He was supposed to graduate with the class of 1992, but he had an idea that he wouldn’t actually graduate. Aside from appearing in school plays such as 'Burn This in Winthrop House', Matt usually skipped classes to pursue minor acting projects, including 'Rising Sun' (1993) and prep-school drama, 'School Ties' (1992).
After 'True Grit,' Matt Damon starred in the 2011 romantic action thriller 'The Adjustment Bureau' based on the Philip K. Dick short story, “Adjustment Team.” Here he takes on the role of Brooklyn Congressman David Norris who unsuccessfully runs for the United States Senate. And then David met Elise, a character played by Emily Blunt.
