Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel are teaming for the political satire “Nailed” which David O. Russell (“Three Kings,” “I Heart Huckabees”) will direct for Red Wagon and Persistent Entertainment reports Reuters.
Biel would play Sammy Joyce, a socially awkward small-town receptionist who has a nail accidentally shot into her head by a clumsy workman, eliciting wild sexual urges.
The uninsured Joyce goes on a crusade to Washington to fight for the rights of the bizarrely injured. She meets an immoral congressman (Gyllenhaal) who takes advantage of her sex drive and capitalizes on her crusade as Joyce heads into her own career in politics.
Russell co-write the screenplay with Kristin Gore (Al Gore’s daughter). Shooting is scheduled to begin in January.
