While recent years have seen Denis Villeneuve release sci-fi features such as `Arrival,` `Blade Runner 2049,` and the forthcoming `Dune,` it's important to not forget some of the earlier, smaller-scale features that really proved that the filmmaker is one of the best. Two of those films, `Prisoners` and `Enemy,` star Jake Gyllenhaal, giving a couple of his greatest performances to date. So, the idea of Villeneuve working with the actor on a new project is almost too good to be true.
Well, thankfully, it appears that the duo is currently collaborating on something new, albeit we don't have a clue what project this might be. Speaking to Roger Deakins on the Team Deakins podcast, Gyllenhaal talked about how he first started his relationship with VIlleneuve, before production on `Enemy` and how the two can't wait to work together again on a new project.
The story began with Gyllenhaal describing a memorable dinner where Villeneuve was pitching the actor on the body double thriller, `Enemy.` He said that he believes the filmmaker had a `plant` show up to the table and explains that her son looks identical to Gyllenhaal.
Of course, the tease of a new project is all that is given. Hell, we don't even know what Villeneuve's future looks like right now, as he's putting the finishing touches on `Dune.` We know the filmmaker is hoping to eventually shoot a sequel to the upcoming adaptation, but he also recently discussed a desire to work on smaller films, as it's been years since he's released a film anywhere close to resembling `Prisoners` or `Enemy.`
