Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest Hollywood star to jump from the big screen over to Netflix and his new film Velvet Buzzsaw is already creating quite the… well, buzz. The movie is a thriller set in the art world and people on social media are already billing it “the new Bird Box“.

Here’s your need to know about the film:

When is it released?

Velvet Buzzsaw is available from Friday 1 February on Netflix.

What is it about?

Velvet Buzzsaw is a thriller set in the contemporary art scene of Los Angeles, where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce. Gyllenhaal plays pretentious art dealer, Morf Vandewalt, who is offered some works of art from a hermit artist, who has just died. What starts off as a satirical look at the fakeness of the art world soon turns into a horror story when the artworks come alive to attack the buyers. When Vandewalt’s colleague is murdered, art fans just presume she’s part of the artwork (similar to an Inside Number 9 episode). “We’re trending on Instagram. It’s a major hit!” one of the art collective says.

Who stars in it?

Alongside Gyllenhaal, the film has a stellar cast including: John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich), Toni Colette (Muriel’s Wedding, The Sixth Sense), Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat, Guerilla) Rene Russo (Nightcrawler, Thomas Crown Affair), Billy Magnussen (Into The Woods, The Big Short) and Daveed Diggs (Blindspotting).

Who directs it?

Dan Gilroy – who previously directed Nightcrawlers, which also starred Gyllenhaal.

What does Gilroy say about it?

Gilroy teased details about the film in 2017 to Business Insider and initially said it would be released around Halloween “to give you some indication what type of movie it is”. He added: “It’s set in the world of contemporary art in Los Angeles. It’s got a Robert Altman-like large ensemble cast. It’s got a The Player vibe to it. “There’s a large cast and we’re moving around from person to person as we move through this world. The story is being told through these different characters.” It will have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on 27 January.

Bold Films, and Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker’s Nine Stories banner have acquired the rights to remake the Danish thriller “The Guilty,” with Gyllenhaal attached to star.

The pic won the world cinema audience award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and was also named one of the top five foreign language films of 2018 by the National Board of Review. The movie, Denmark’s foreign-language Oscar entry, is also nominated for best screenwriter and best actor at the European Film Awards.

The movie follows a police officer under investigation, who’s demoted to desk work at an emergency call center. When he receives a terrified phone call from a kidnapped woman, he must battle his internal demons in order to save her.

Gyllenhaal and Marker will produce for Nine Stories, alongside Bold Films’ Michel Litvak, Gary Michael Walters, David Litvak, and Svetlana Metkina. Bold Films will finance the pic. The original film’s co-writer/director Gustav Möller and producer Lina Flint will serve as executive producers. The original movie was the first production from Spring, the new talent development initiative backed by TrustNordisk.

“We saw ‘The Guilty’ at Sundance and were blown away. Möller’s film masterfully weaves tension into an acute character study, and is exactly the kind of material that Nine Stories is excited to develop. We are honored to be able to adapt it for American audiences alongside Bold Films,” Gyllenhaal and Marker said.

“We are thrilled to acquire this great IP for Jake,” Bold Films chairman Michel Litvak said. “It’s a terrific vehicle for him to craft a super taut, elevated thriller.”

Worldwide sales were handled by TrustNordisk, which sold Möller’s movie to Magnolia Pictures in the U.S.

“We are super excited about this collaboration and we look very much forward to continue the amazing journey with ‘The Guilty,’” Flint said.

Gyllenhaal most recently starred in Paul Dano’s directorial debut, “Wildlife.” He can next be seen in Dan Gilroy’s “Velvet Buzzsaw,” which will premiere at Sundance and debut on Netflix in February. Gyllenhaal will follow that up with “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” where he will play Spider-Man villain Mysterio, alongside Tom Holland and Zendaya. The sequel is set to bow on July 5, 2019.

He will return to the stage for “Sea Wall/A Life,” an exploration of the beauty of life and the meaning of love, which opens on Jan. 26, 2019 at the Public Theater.

Bold Films recently released “Vox Lux,” starring Natalie Portman and Jude Law.

Gyllenhaal and Nine Stories are represented by WME and Bloom Hergott. Möller and Flint are represented by WME.
