Now shooting in Los Angeles, Dan Gilroy's untitled Jake Gyllenhaal Netflix movie has been fleshing out its ensemble cast, most notably with the addition of Stranger Things star Natalia Dyer, who plays Nancy Wheeler in the hit streaming show. From what we hear, the film is actually a horror movie but detailed plot details are being kept well under-wraps. The streaming network will be expecting big things, as writer/director Gilroy's previous collaboration on 2014's Nightcrawler with Gyllenhaal and Russo earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay.

"It's set in the world of contemporary art in Los Angeles".

As well the already revealed names of Gyllenhaal and Rene Russo, British actress Zawe Ashton, Stranger Things breakout Natalia Dyer, Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge, Tony Award victor Daveed Diggs, Academy Award nominee Toni Collette, Academy Award nominee John Malkovich and Billy Magnussen have signed up for the upcoming horror-thriller.

Zawe Ashton has previously starred alongside Gyllenhaal in last years Nocturnal Animals and has also appeared in the Showtime show, Guerilla. He is repped by WME. She's also repped by WME and One Entertainment.


Sturridge is best known for his Tony-nominated role in "Orphans".

Many fans will know Natalia Dyer from her breakout role in Stranger Things, where she plays the heroic Nancy Wheeler.

Collette and Malkocich are two of the hardest working actors in showbiz bar-none with Collette appearing in the similarly-buzzworthy Sundance film Hereditary, which A24 just screened at SXSW before its release on June 8, as well as Brett Haley's Sundance film Hearts Beat Loud.

Last but most certainly not least, the WME-repped Malkovich is busy filming Birdbox for Netflix and Mark Wahlberg's Mile 22 for STX, reuniting the duo from 2016's Deepwater Horizon.
