Carey Mulligan & Jake Gyllenhaal star in Wildlife #basedonabook by Richard Ford #book2movie

Carey Mulligan stars in Wildlife

Paul Dano—we loved him as Beach Boy Brian Wilson and as Pierre in War and Peacehas gone behind the camera with his film Wildlife. His directorial debut is based on Richard Ford’s novel and stars Carey Mulligan, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ed Oxenbould and Bill Camp. 

Jake Gyllenhaal plays husband Joe Brinson in the family drama

The family drama had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival and is set to screen at Cannes. We first heard about Dano and Zoe Kazan’s collaboration—they wrote the adaptation of Ford’s novel together—back in 2016 when we learned neither of the actor/writer/directors has an on-camera part. 

Let’s look at the book
The setting is Great Falls, Montana, where the Rockies end and where, in 1960, the promise of good times seems as limitless as the sweep of the prairies beyond. This is where the Brinson family hopes to find a better life. Instead, sixteen-year-old Joe Brinson watches his parents discover the limits of their marriage and, at the same time, the unexpected depths of dignity and courage that remain even when love dies.

The release date isn’t set but it looks to be sometime this fall. In time for award season?
