Netflix have released the official trailer for the upcoming English-language remake of The Guilty.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
The film takes place over the course of a single morning in a 911 dispatch call centre. Call operator Joe Baylor tries to save a caller in grave danger—but he soon discovers that nothing is as it seems, and facing the truth is the only way out.
While I was initially skeptical about this project as I loved the Danish original, I was still excited as it has Jake Gyllenhaal attached. Watching this trailer however, it does feel pretty much identical to the original other than the language change, so I’m hoping there’s some kind of flare in the film to make it stand apart from the original when I get a chance to see it.
The film is adapted by Nic Pizzolatto, directed by Antoine Fuqua, and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Ethan Hawke, Peter Sarsgaard, Riley Keough, Paul Dano, Byron Bowers, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, David Castaneda, Christina Vidal, Adrian Martinez, Bill Burr, Beau Knapp and Edi Patterson.
The Guilty will become available on the streaming service on the 1st October 2021.
