Netflix has revealed casting details for its remake of hit Danish psychological thriller The Guilty (Den skyldige), adapted by Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective) with Antoine Fuqua (Southpaw) on board to direct.
Inspired by real events, The Guilty follows an emergency dispatcher (Jake Gyllenhaal) who answers a call from someone in grave danger. Confined to his office, he is forced to use others as his eyes and ears to find them as his personal demons conspire against him. Nothing is as it seems, and facing the truth is the only way out.
The cast includes: Peter Sarsgaard (The Looming Tower), Riley Keough (Earthquake Bird), Byron Bowers (Concrete Cowboys), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Dolemite Is My Name), David Castañeda (The Umbrella Academy), Christina Vidal (7 Days to Vegas), Paul Dano (The Batman), Ethan Hawke (Boyhood), Adrian Martinez (I Feel Pretty), Bill Burr (The King of Staten Island), Beau Knapp (The Nice Guys), and Edi Patterson (Knives Out)
Co-producers Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker previously told Variety: “We saw The Guilty at Sundance and were blown away. Möller’s film masterfully weaves tension into an acute character study… We are honoured to be able to adapt it for American audiences.”
