The cast for Prisoners is getting incredibly good, with Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano, Viola Davis, and Maria Bello already attached to the film, and they’ve now been joined by Terrence Howard, according to Deadline.
Denis Villeneuve (Incendies) is set to direct, with Hugh Jackman as a distraught father who takes the law into his own hands to find his kidnapped daughter, when he think the authorities aren’t doing enough. He clashes with a big city detective (Jake Gyllenhaal) who is assigned to the case.
Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband) wrote the screenplay, with filming on the movie set to begin in February. An autumn 2013 release is being eyed.
