Following a successful collaboration on this week’s sci-fi thriller “Life,” actor Jake Gyllenhaal and director Daniel Espinosa are re-teaming for a film adaptation of the Rolling Stone article “The Anarchists vs ISIS”.
Seth Harp’s feature piece for the mag tells the true story of a ragtag team of American volunteers, socialists and outcasts. Together they fight alongside the YPG (the Kurdish militia) to beat ISIS in Syria and establish an anarchist collective amid the rubble of war.
Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker’s Ninestories along with Bold Films have optioned the article. Both will produce alongside Espinosa and Michel Litvak, while Gyllenhaal is expected to star in the project.
