Long in development but now in post-production, the Jake Gyllenhaal crime thriller Nightcrawlers, written and directed by Dan Gilroy--writer of Real Steel and co-writer of The Bourne Legacy--has finally been picked up for U.S. distribution by Open Road Films, having sold much of its international rights last September.

The film, in which Gyllenhaal plays a man who becomes involved in the world of freelance crime journalism in Los Angeles, was the center of a small bidding war at Cannes which was won by Open Road's reported bid of $4.5 million.

Financed by Bold Films, the movie is produced by Jennifer Fox, Tony Gilroy, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bold Films’ Chairman Michel Litvak and David Lancaster with Bold Films' Walters and Betsy Danbury acting as executive producers.

Open Road CEO Tom Ortenberg is quoted in the press release, saying “We are thrilled to re-team with Jake Gyllenhaal, with whom we shared great success on End Of Watch. Dan and Tony Gilroy are incredibly talented and have made a fantastic film and we couldn’t be happier about adding Nightcrawlers to our slate.”
