Jake Gyllenhaal heads to Motor City?

March 8th, 2012

Jake Gyllenhaal is in negotiations to take over for Dominic Cooper in 'Motor City'.

The 'Brokeback Mountain' star is talking with producers to play a convict who when released from prison begins to hunt down the men who framed him.

Amber Heard and Oscar-nominee Gary Oldman are already signed up to co-star in the film, which has been written by Chad St. John.

'Mamma Mia!' actor Dominic had to leave the project due to a scheduling conflict with Roger Donaldson's 'Cities', to which he is also signed up to.

Albert Hughes is directing the action thriller.

Jake was last seen in well received time-thriller 'Source Code', which was released last year, and will next appear in cop drama 'End of Watch'.

Dominic has a number of movies coming up following on from his appearance as Milton Greene in 'My Week with Marilyn'.

In addition to 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter', he is also expected to appear in 'My Dinner with Herve', which is set for release in 2013.
