Open Road has released a new red band trailer for the Dan Gilroy-directed thriller Nightcrawler. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a driven, soulless wannabe who gets a fast car, a cheap camera and a police scanner and chases traffic accidents, murders and other violent incidents in hopes of getting film he can sell to a cellar-dwelling Los Angeles TV news producer. The pace is manic as the anti-hero proves there are no moral bounds to his ambition.
Nightcrawler is an upcoming American crime thriller film written and directed by Dan Gilroy. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed, and Bill Paxton. Marking Gilroy’s directorial debut, it tells the story of a driven young man who stumbles upon the underground world of Los Angeles freelance crime journalism.
The film was screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. It is scheduled to be released by Open Road Films on October 31, 2014.
