Ahmed Joins Gyllenhaal In “Sisters Brothers”

It’s a “Nightcrawler” reunion as Riz Ahmed is set to re-team with Jake Gyllenhaal on the English-language indie noir western “The Sisters Brothers”.

Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly also star in the film based on Patrick deWitt’s novel. Set in Oregon in 1851, the story follows two brothers – Eli and Charlie Sisters – who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss.

Ahmed’s role is unknown. Jacques Audiard (“Dheepan”) is directing while Reilly, Alison Dickey and Michael De Luca are producing. Production is set to start sometime this summer.
