Jake Gyllenhaal (‘Nightcrawler,’ ‘Prisoners,’ ‘Source Code’), Ansel Elgort (‘Baby Driver,’ ‘The Fault in Our Stars’) and breakout star Zendaya (‘Spider-Man: Homecoming,’ ‘The Greatest Showman’) are all set for ‘Finest Kind,’ the new crime thriller which was written and will be directed by Brian Helgeland (‘L.A. Confidential,’ ‘Mystic River’).
Finest Kind is a crime thriller about two brothers (Gyllenhaal and Elgort) who strike a dangerous deal with a crime syndicate that draws them into the Boston underworld. As pressures mount, sacrifices must be made and bonds—between brother and brother and between father and sons–put to the test.
Gary Foster (‘Denial,’ ‘The Soloist,’ ‘Sleepless in Seattle’) and Russ Krasnoff (‘Denial,’ ‘The Soloist’) are on board to produce through their Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment banner, along with Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas. Gyllenhaal and Nine Stories partner Riva Marker will co-produce.
