Melanie Laurant, Isabella Rossellini and Sarah Gadon discover An Enemy

Jake Gyllenhaal is getting some lovely female company on the set of his latest, the psychological chiller AN ENEMY. Melanie Laurent (pictured right), Sarah Gadon and Isabella Rossellini have all joined the film, which is being directed by recent Oscar-nominee Denis Villeneuve (INCENDIES).

Based on the 1998 novel by José Saramago, AN ENEMY sees Gyllenhaal as Adam, a divorced teacher, quietly living with his girlfriend Mary. He discovers a physically identical man, an actor called Anthony, living nearby with his wife, Helen.

Adam stalks his double, intending to observe from a distance, but soon the couples' lives become intertwined, precipitating a lethal battle in which only one couple can survive.

Laurent, well known for her leading turn in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, will play Adam's girlfriend, while Gadon (soon to be seen in Cronenberg's COSMOPOLIS) takes on the role of his wife. It's unsure who Rossellini will be playing at this time.

Principal photography begins on May 22 in Toronto.

Extra Tidbit: Gadon was recently seen (by a small few) in Mary Harron's THE MOTH DIARIES.
