Open Road Films has released roundtable interviews with Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo and Dan Gilroy in support of Nightcrawler, opening Oct. 31.
Written and directed by Gilroy, Nightcrawler is set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of night crawling — where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.
