Gyllenhaal also breaks down how he prepares for filming a very emotional scene.
With The Guilty now streaming on Netflix, I recently spoke to Jake Gyllenhaal and director Antoine Fuqua about making their self-contained thriller. If you haven’t seen the trailer, the film takes place over the course of a single morning in a 911 dispatch call center. Sergeant Bill Miller (Gyllenhaal), a Los Angeles police officer who has been assigned desk duty as a 911 operator, tries to save a caller of his final evening on duty—but he soon discovers that nothing is as it seems.
Featuring a superb performance by Gyllenhaal who is almost the only face we see on screen, The Guilty also stars Ethan Hawke, Riley Keough, Christina Vidal Mitchell, Eli Goree, Da’vine Joy Randolph, David Castañeda, Paul Dano and Peter Sarsgaard. The film is written by Nic Pizzolatto and it’s based on the 2018 Danish movie of the same name.
