When you are one of the top stars in the acting industry, you will find that there are a lot of people who want to work with you and want you to star in their films. This will lead to you being attached to a number of different movie projects at the same time, some of which will get up and running in no time at all, while there are others that tend to drag on a bit in development and pre-production, with others not even seeing the light of day.
Hollywood hunk Jake Gyllenhaal has a number of new movie projects to his name for the coming years and, while he is currently shooting his new movie Stronger, which is based on the Boston Marathon bombing, he also has plenty more lined up. One such movie, that Jake has been attached to for a while now, is the planned project Okja, which has some strong names linked to the cast.
As well as having Jake Gyllenhaal lined up to play the male lead in the movie, Okja also has Lily Collins on board to play the female lead in the film, with a supporting cast that includes such names as Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Kelly Macdonald, and Bill Nighy. Okja is expected to be directed by Joon Ho Bong, who also penned the screenplay for the new project, with the aim of having a release date in place for 2017.
With that said, all of the stars linked to roles in Okja also have other movie projects to their names, some of which are set to begin production soon, so it is going to be interesting to see when and whether they will all actually be free at the same time. We will keep you posted with the progress on this one.
