SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME's Jake Gyllenhaal To Star In Superhero Film PROPHET From EXTRACTION Director

One of Hollywood's busiest leading men just got a little busier as Jake Gyllenhaal has signed on to star in Prophet, an upcoming live-action adaptation of the Image comic book of the same name.

A few weeks after signing on for the live-action film adaptation of Oblivion Song, Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal has joined the cast of another comic book movie adaptation: Prophet.

The Studio 8 film, which has action extraordinaire Sam Hargrave (Extraction; Extraction 2) attached to direct, will adapt Rob Liefeld's Image comic book series of the same name and is being developed with the intention of launching a new franchise. Marc Guggenheim (Arrow; DC's Legends of Tomorrow) has been tapped to pen the script. 

The story follows John Prophet (Gyllenhaal), a man who volunteers for a German experiment near the end of World War II in order to feed his family. However, after a bombing buries him alive and traps him underground for 20 years, he reawakens in 1965, where things are not great for Prophet. The world has moved on without him, his daughter resents him, and KGB agents are after him to create super-soldiers from his blood.

Gyllenhaal has been a busy man since appearing as Quentin Beck, a.k.a. Mysterio, in Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: Far From Home, having signed a number of major projects, including Antoine Fuqua's The Guilty (now streaming on Netflix), Michael Bay's Ambulance (February 18), HBO's limited series The Son, the aforementioned Oblivion Song, amongst several other things.
