JAKE GYLLENHAAL AND CAREY MULLIGAN TO STAR IN “WILDLIFE
JUNE PICTURES AND NINE STORIES PRODUCE PAUL DANO'S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT

Paul Dano will bring Richard Ford’s American classic WILDLIFE to the screen, marking his directorial debut. Academy Award® nominees Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan are set to star in this period drama. Production will commence early November 2016.

Said Dano, "In Richard's book I saw myself and many others. I have always wanted to make films - and have always known I would make films about family. I couldn't be happier to have such beautiful collaborators like Carey and Jake leading the way."

“Paul is a natural born storyteller--a force. We are thrilled to collaborate with him and these phenomenal actors to bring his exquisite vision for this film to life,” stated Duncan and Saks from June Pictures.
