Nightcrawler is set to be a modern classic, with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead. He has ditched his famous good looks, as Travis Bickle, who stalks the streets entirely in the viral world. A vagabond, Lou Bloom gets a new job, when he sees a cameraman filming an incident of a car accident in LA.
When Bloom discovers the footage of the film digitally, a whole series of action sequences begins to unfold and you get to meet many absurd characters, such as Presto, a digital ambulance chaser, and Riz Ahmed, an assistant in the topsy turvy world. It’s generating Oscar buzz for Gyllenhall, which is fabulous to know, and also stars Rene Russo and Bill Paxton. It premiers in theatres on October 21.
