So has Jake Gyllenhaal found his Martin Scorsese? Whatever is happening between him and French Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve ("Incendies") seems to be working as after spening the summer with him shooting "An Enemy," he's going to take a role in the director's next film, which is now picking up speed.

Gyllenhaal is in talks to join Hugh Jackman and the recently announced Melissa Leo in "Prisoners." The Black List script penned by Aaron Guzikowski (“Contraband”), revolves around a small-town carpenter named Keller (Jackman) whose young daughter and best friend are kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against the big city detective assigned to the case. No word yet on Gyllenhaal's role, but apparently a script polish convinced him to enter talks.

Not to pore over the long and complicated history of this movie, but it has been developing for at least the last two or three years with a variety of talent going in and out over that time. But everything seems to be sticking at the moment, and it's pulling together some pretty great talent behind and in front of the cameras. Production on "Prisoners" is slated to begin in early 2013 or basically whenever Jackman is done with this duties for "The Wolverine" and "Les Miserables," with a release later the same year.
