Paul Dano has come aboard the film, which boasts a pretty gritty little premise. 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 (Gyllenhaal) assigned to the case. No word yet on Dano's role.
So: Jackman, Gyellenhaal, Leo and Dano? Yeah, we can roll with that. "Incendies" helmer Denis Villeneuve is at the helm, with an early 2013 shoot in the works with the movie to come out next year as well. Will it be an Oscar player?
