Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback MountainNightcrawler), Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our StarsBaby Driver) and Zendaya (Spider-Man: HomecomingThe Greatest Showman) have been cast in the upcoming crime thriller Finest Kind. The film was written and directed by Academy Award-winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. ConfidentialMystic River).

Finest Kind will be produced by Gary Foster (Denial, The Soloist, Sleepless in Seattle) and Russ Krasnoff (Denial, The Soloistunder Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment, Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas, and Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker under their Nine Stories banner.  30WEST is financing the film.  STXinternational, a division of STX Entertainment, will handle international distribution for the film and introduce to buyers at the upcoming European Film Market. STXinternational will also directly distribute the film in the UK and Ireland.

Finest Kind is a crime thriller about two brothers (Gyllenhaal and Elgort) who strike a dangerous deal with a crime syndicate that draws them into the Boston underworld. As pressures mount, sacrifices must be made and bonds—between brother and brother and between father and sons–put to the test.

Producer Gary Foster said, “Brian and I have dreamed about making this film together for a long time. Brian’s directorial vision and powerful screenplay which draws on his experiences growing up in the tough town of New Bedfrod, Mass., has attracted a stellar cast lead by Jake, Ansel and Zendaya. I couldn’t be more thrilled!”

David Kosse, President of STXinternational said, “Reteaming with Imperative and 30WEST is another great opportunity to bring quality filmmaking to the international marketplace. Brian Helgeland is the perfect director to capture the grit and emotion of this phenomenal cast.   It’s a great collaboration on every level and I could not be more delighted to be working alongside such an exciting group of filmmakers.”
