What a showcase of friendship!
Real-life BFF – I’m pretty sure that he went to her wedding to Marcus Mumford and that they’re all like, tight – Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan are gonna be there for actor Paul Dano when he makes the transition to feature-film director.
The Swiss Army Man star is going to produce and helm his first movie, a period drama titled Wildlife based on the eponymous 1990 Richard Ford novel, the script for which he adapted with actress-writer Zoe Kazan, his real-life girlfriend, who also will executive produce the project.
The film will tell the story of a teenaged boy who sees how his parents’ marriage falls apart after the family moves to Montana.
I suppose Jakey-bear and Mulligan will portray the warring husband-and-wife duo. No word on who the lucky – ha! – young man will be that co-stars opposite them yet.
