“You have to make the money to buy a ticket!” screams Jake Gyllenhaal in Bold Films’ upcoming Toronto world premiere. What on earth can he mean?

The teaser trailer will give a clue. What is abundantly clear is this is shaping up to be another intense performance from a gifted actor building an impressive body of work. And another hot pick from Bold Films, the people who brought you Drive and Whiplash.

Open Films snapped up US rights to the story of a driven, freelance crime reporter on the mean streets of Los Angeles and will release on October 17.

Sierra Affinity handles international sales. Dan Gilroy directs. Rene Russo and Bill Paxton also star.
