Jakes Gyllenhaal Goes For His Oscar - Again!
Leonard Bernstein is of course the famed composer of West Side Story and the bit that everyone shouts along with in REM’s It’s The End Of The World As We Know It. Now he’s about to get the biopic treatment, with Cary Fukunaga directing Jake Gyllenhaal through yet another attempt to satisfy the man’s desperate desire to win an Oscar. Gay cowboy didn’t work. Psychotic news cameraman didn’t work. Rapidly blinking cop didn’t work. Excessive home re-modeller didn’t work. Bombed Bostonian didn’t work (only made him Stronger!) So let’s give gay but happily married genius American musical icon a bash!
Currently titled The American, filming is due to start this Autumn – unless Jake runs off to become the new Batman instead.
