Dylan Minnette has started production on a new project; the gritty Alcon Entertainment thriller, Prisoners. The movie stars Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, and Terrence Howard.
In the rural New England town of Brockton, Massachusetts, neighbors and friends the Dovers and the Birches gather for Thanksgiving dinner, but by the end of the night, their celebration turns to panic when the families’ two youngest daughters go missing. As the hours pass and the girls don’t turn up, it becomes terrifyingly apparent they’ve been kidnapped. After the cops fail to find them, Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) decides to take the law into his own hands, running up against dedicated Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal). But even as Loki is diligently working against the clock to solve the case, Keller will stop at nothing to get their prime suspect to talk before it’s too late.
Denis Villeneuve (Incendies) is on board to direct with the script by Aaron Guzikowski (Contraband.) Dylan Minnette will be playing character Ralph Dover in the film.
Prisoners is slated for a 2013/2014 release.
