Jake Gyllenhaal & Antoine Fuqua

After collaborating on the forthcoming boxing drama Southpaw, currently in post-production, director Antoine Fuqua and actor Jake Gyllenhaal are looking to get back together on the big screen. Deadline has word that the duo will team up for The Man Who Made It Snow, a true crime drama about Max Mermelstein, the Jewish hotel engineer who transformed the infamous Pablo Escobar’s Medellin drug cartel from a small homegrown drug organization into a billion-dollar business. Fuqua will also produce the film as the first project that is part of a first look deal with IM Global, and Gyllenhaal gets a producing credit too.

The film is based on Max Mermelstein's autobiography of the same name, and has been adapted by Brent Tabor. Gyllenhaal is coming off rave reviews for his turn in Nightcrawler, and has had quite a career resurgence with a variety of great performances, and it doesn't look like he's showing any signs of slowing down. Of course, Fuqua has been known to fall away from projects frequently, and since this is on sale at the American Film Market, it might not move forward quickly. But if Fuqua and Gyllenhaal have delivered a hit with Southpaw (which doesn't have a release date yet), then they might hurry to collaborate again.

Gyllenhaal's quiet resurgence has been such a pleasure to watch. I hope starts getting some nominations pretty soon, although it looks like he is not picking roles for wins.
