Nightcrawler Director's Netflix Movie Casts John Malkovich & More

A pretty impressive cast list has been announced for the upcoming as-yet-untitled Dan Gilroy and Jake Gyllenhaal Netflix film.

The film has repeatedly been described as a "horror-thriller", but details are very scarce. Continuing the Nightcrawler reunion - which was Gilroy's highly acclaimed directorial debut - Jennifer Fox, who produced Nightcrawler, will also be producing this upcoming untitled film for Netflix.

News broke last summer that Gilroy was hoping to bring his Nightcrawler stars back together for a film set in the art world, and Netflix picked up the distribution rights soon after.

British actress Zawe Ashton, "Stranger Things" breakout Natalia Dyer, Tony Award nominee Tom Sturridge, Tony Award victor Daveed Diggs, Academy Award nominee Toni Collette, and Academy Award nominee John Malkovich have signed on to join Gyllenhaal and Russo in upcoming horror-thriller.

Now, as production gets started, the thriller, which reunites Gyllenhaal with Dan Gilroy, the director of his 2014 Oscar-nominated crime drama vehicle, Nightcrawler, has a full ensemble to showcase. Her most recent credits include the Showtime series "Guerrilla" and "Nocturnal Animals", which also starred Gyllenhaal.

Bills Could Change Pa. Abortion Law
Pennsylvania is the latest state to push for a law targeting women who want an abortion because the baby has Down syndrome. Supporters include the Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg. "Folks with Down syndrome deserve protection", Martin said.

Sturridge is best known for his Tony-nominated role in "Orphans". She is repped by APA, Link and Troika. He also appeared in the Lionsgate hit Wonder and the ABC show black-ish. She is repped by WME and One Entertainment.

Collette and Malkocich are two of the hardest working actors in showbiz bar-none with Collette appearing in the similarly-buzzworthy Sundance film Hereditary, which A24 just screened at SXSW before its release on June 8, as well as Brett Haley's Sundance film Hearts Beat Loud. Collette is repped by CAA and United Management.

It will have to have a big cast, with Gilroy revealing past year that it was to be a Robert Altman style sprawling ensemble.

The casting was initially reported by Variety.
