Jake Gyllenhaal and Dylan O’Brien look set to lead the ensemble for Michael Bay’s next movie as director – more details here.

For his first film as director since last year’s Netflix cheque book emptier 6 Underground, Michael Bay is to turn his attention to a project called Ambulance. This one is set to star Jake Gyllenhaal, with Dylan O’Brien looking likely to co-star.

They’ll play a pair of brothers who steal an ambulance. Inside that ambulance is a paramedic, and she’s tending to a patient who’s on the verge of dying. Expect this one to be a quiet, diligent telling of the tale.

Chris Fedak has written the screenplay, which is described by The Hollywood Reporter as a mix of Speed and Training Day (a sentence I can’t say I’ve written before).

Universal is circling the project as its distributor, and the plan will be to shoot the film in and around the Los Angeles area. That should make it an easier film to put into production in current circumstances, where globe-trotting movie shoots look off the table for the minute.

More as we hear it. The actor deals aren’t locked for this one yet, so we’ll keep you posted.
