We’ve been keeping tabs on The Guiltyfor a little bit now. First we reported that that the remake of the 2018 Danish thriller, then we reported that Antoine Fuqua would be directing the project, reuniting with his Southpawstar Jake Gyllenhaal as the lead actor. Now, we know where we’ll be watching the fruits of their labor. Per Deadline, The Guilty has been snatched up by Netflix for worldwide distribution rights — and they paid quite the hefty penny for it, too.
The Guilty is a contained thriller starring Gyllenhaal as a 911 operator in a call center who receives an agitated call from an agitated caller, and is flung into a world of chaos as a result. Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective) adapted the new screenplay, and Gyllenhaal and Fuqua will produce alongside original film director Gustav Möller, Gyllenhaal’s producing partner Riva Marker, Fuqua’s producing partner Kat Samick, Scott Greenberg, Michel Litvak, Gary Michael Walters, David Litvak, Svetlana Metkina, David Haring, Annie Marter, Christian Mercuri, and Jon Oakes.
