After bursting onto the scene with "Half Nelson," which featured a career-making turn by Ryan Gosling, filmmaking duo Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden haven't exactly lived up to those heights, with the criminally underrated "Sugar" flying below the radar, and the lightweight "Kind Of A Funny Story" not quite landing with the force some were expecting. The filmmakers, however, have a new, exciting project in the works.

You have to hand it to David Ayer, he has found his niche and he’s working it hard. From “Training Day” to films like “The Fast And The Furious,” “Harsh Times” and “Street Kings” he’s worked steadily in the urban crime genre, mostly following cops with less than ethical methods. A new red band trailer has dropped, showing his latest entry into the genre, the Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña-starring “End of Watch.”

Hey, did you know that Cody Horn, Channing Tatum's ball-busting love interest in "Magic Mike," was in David Ayer's upcoming cop drama "End Of Watch"? We didn't either, but among the batch of new pics from the film hitting the web in advance of the film's TIFF premiere and fall release, is an image that shows her in a different light than we saw in the stripper flick.

David Ayer likes to make cop movies, and we suppose if that's what keeps the bread buttered and a roof over your head, why mess with a good thing? But while "End of Watch" employs a voyeuristic/found-footage aesthetic not commonly found in the genre, the story itself feels like one we've seen and heard many times before. But with a TIFF premiere on the cards, perhaps there's a little bit more weight to it than simply being another study of the boys in blue.

Did you know that David Ayer's "End Of Watch" was presented at Comic-Con this weekend? No? Well, it was, but unfortunately the gamble by newbie distributors Open Road Films didn't quite pay off. Of the many, many movies lighting up social media this weekend and getting major buzz, this cop drama wasn't one of them.

A found footage cop movie? OK, not quite, but David Ayer's "End of Watch," starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as two cops in the LAPD, definitely has that visceral, super intimate, shot on digital-cameras look to it. Or as Ayer once described it: an "in your face” POV style, and that's definitely the case.

Jake Gyllenhaal To Make 'An Enemy' With 'Incendies' Director Denis Villeneuve Based On Jose Saramago's 'The Double'

While he didn't get the win in 2011, Denis Villeneuve's Oscar nominated "Incendies" put the helmer on the map, Hollywood called and he suddenly found a few more options on his plate. Last year, he came on board the long developing Black List script "Prisoners" (which recently landed a lead in Hugh Jackman) as well as an adaptation of Russell Banks' "The Darling" with Jessica Chastain linked to a role. And then last month, he also put an adaptation of Joe Sacco's "Footsteps In Gaza" on his pile. But it's a new project that looks like it will go first.

So, if you're a relatively unknown French electronic dance act, looking to get some buzz, hiring a Hollywood actor and getting him to kill a bunch of people in a nonsensical video is a pretty good way to go. That's pretty much what The Shoes have done in their slick but totally empty video for "Time To Dance" which features Jake Gyllenhaal mercilessly killing a bunch of people...all to the soundtrack of some hype beats!

It looks like "Motor City" is going to need to refuel. Just one day after the film found a new leading man in Jake Gyllenhaal, it looks like the search will have to start over.

Well, the writing was on the wall a few weeks ago when Dominic Cooper replaced Clive Owen in the ensemble drama "Cities," but it seems it'll just be a bit of musical chairs as Cooper himself has now been replaced in "Motor City."
