Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal is reuniting with filmmaker Antoine Fuqua for the upcoming remake of Danish feature The Guilty.

The duo had previously collaborated on 2015 boxing drama Southpaw.

The new movie has a script from True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto, reported Deadline.

The original film, a suspense thriller, was the official entry of Denmark for the Best International Feature category in 2019 Academy Awards. The movie had also bagged the world audience award at Sundance the same year.

The story follows a police officer under investigation who is demoted to desk-work at an emergency call centre. When he receives a terrifying phone call from a kidnapped woman, he must battle his internal demons in order to save her.

Gyllenhaal will also produce alongside Nine Stories co-founder Riva Marker, with Michel Litvak, Gary Michael Walters, David Litvak and Svetlana Metkina producing for Bold Films.

Moller and producer Lina Flint will serve as executive producers.
