Dan Gilroy's previous screenplay credits include Freejack, Chasers, Two For the Money, The Fall, Real Steel, and last year's The Bourne Legacy, which he co-wrote with his brother Tony Gilroy.

Jake Gyllenhaal recently starred in last year's critically-acclaimed End of Watch, and will next be seen in Prisoners, alongside Hugh Jackman.

    @bawnian-dexeus@dan1 there should be a warning or something in the title. I feel like a kid expecting to find presents under a christmas tree and only finding rocks. I hate it..

    Would be funny if Gyllenhaal himself thought it was marvel's Nightcrawler as well lol. He'd be quite good too - accent would have that comic tint.

    Gyllenhaal needs better roles. They need to change the title of this film is misleading.
