Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan are attached to star in June Pictures’ “Wildlife,” written and directed by Paul Dano in the actor’s directing debut.
Based on the Richard Ford novel, the story tells the tale of a boy who witnesses his parents’ marriage falling apart after his mom finds another man. “Paul is a natural born storyteller — a force.
We are thrilled to collaborate with him and these phenomenal actors to bring his exquisite vision for this film to life,” said Andrew Duncan and Alex Saks from June Pictures. The pic is produced by Duncan and Saks for June Pictures, and Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker for Nine Stories. Oren Moverman, Ann Ruark, and Dano will also produce, while Zoe Kazan and Eddie Vaisman are executive producing.
WME Global handles the domestic rights to the film. The script was co-written by Dano and Kazan.
“In Richard’s book I saw myself and many others. I have always wanted to make films — and have always known I would make films about family,” Dano said. “I couldn’t be happier to have such beautiful collaborators like Carey and Jake leading the way.”
