Benedict Cumberbatch and Jake Gyllenhaal are eyeing to star in an untitled thriller written by Steven Knight and set to be directed by Italian director Luca Guadagnino. StudioCanal will be financing for a production being eyed to start in early 2018.

The story centers on two old friends, one a business titan and the other a journalist. Details are kept under wraps, though the film will be set in an exotic locale. There is also a strong female lead.

If the plans move forward, Cumberbatch’s SunnyMarch partner Adam Ackland and Gyllenhaal’s Nine Stories partner Rivalry Marker would also be producing alongside StudioCanal’s Ron Halpern.
