Actor Jake Gyllenhaal may star in Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden's Mississippi Grind. The two, who directed Ryan Gosling in Half Nelson, will make this gambling film from a screenplay written by them.
The film is about a gambler, who is facing a crushing debt, teaming up with a younger gambling addict in an attempt to change his luck.
Electric City partners Jamie Patricof and Lynette Howell are producing the film alongside former WME agent and Paramount president John Lesher.
