Already starring the pair of Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal has joined the cast of what we will expect will be right up there high on our list of 2018’s Most Anticipated.

“The Sister Brothers” is based on Patrick DeWitt’s novel of the same name. Set in Oregon in 1851, the story centers on two brothers who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss. No word on who is playing who, but our guess is Phoenix and Gyllenhaal as the siblings and Reilly as their boss.

“The Sister Brothers” will be the follow-up to “Dheepan,” Audiard’s Palme d’Or winning drama which premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. The filmmaker is also know for “Rust and Bone” starring Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts. Production on Audiard’s new film is set to start sometime this summer. Cannes 2018? As a debut? We’ll see, in the meantime we’ll relish the idea of this project and a Phoenix, Gyllenhaal team-up with one of today’s most respected filmmakers in the world. [Variety] 4/18/17 Update: Riz Ahmed has joined the cast too.
