Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal wants in on the Michael Bay go big or go home wagon. The ‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ actor has entered into negotiations to star in Bay’s thriller ‘Ambulance’.
The project is a remake of Laurits Munch-Petersen’s 2005 Danish psychological thriller which centres around a bank robbery involving a returned veteran from Afghanistan and his brother. However, the robbery didn’t go as planned with the brothers having no choice but to take hijack an ambulance and take a female paramedic and a patient hostage.
As the situation escalates, old wounds reopen in the relationship between the brothers as they fight to survive what seems like an impossible situation.
