A recent stain on America’s global reputation and their greatest military embarrassment since Vietnam is about to get the Hollywood treatment, but with an unexpected director at the helm in The Interpreter.


Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal is set to lead Guy Ritchie’s new action-thriller. The Interpreter is already set up at Ritchine’s STXFilms and the shoot begins in Spain the moment the New Year’s celebrations have died down.

Gyllenhaal will play Sergeant John Kinley. While on his last tour of duty in Afghanistan, his unit is ambushed on patrol. He is badly injured and the only survivor, along with his local interpreter Ahmed.


Ahmed risks his own life to carry Kinley across miles of grueling terrain to safety with the militia in pursuit. Back home in the US, as the hurried and botched withdrawal from Afghanistan gets underway, Kinley discovers that Ahmed and his family were not given passage to America as promised and have been abandoned by the government.

Determined to protect his friend and repay his debt, Kinley returns to Afghanistan to save Ahmed and his family as the Taliban close in from all sides.


Ritchie is working with writers Ivan Atkinson & Marn Davies for the fourth time. His best recent efforts like The Gentleman and Wrath of Man were in collaboration with them.

Ritchie and Atkinson are also producers. Gyllenhaal has recently appeared in The Guilty and the upcoming Ambulance while Ritchie has placed WW2 action spy thriller Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare on hold at Paramount in order to get this movie made while it is still timely.
