At this stage in his career he can pretty much pick his part, and Jake Gyllenhaal has just signed on to star in “Prisoners.”

The “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time” stud joins Hugh Jackman in the Denis Villeneuve-directed kidnapping thriller, slated for a Fall 2013 theatrical street date.

Per the synopsis, “The story revolves around a small-town carpenter named Keller (Jackman) whose young daughter and her best friend are kidnapped.”

“After the cops fail to find them, Keller takes the law into his own hands, but in the process runs up against Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal), a hot shot cop with confidence to burn, assigned to the case.”
