GYLLENHAAL END OF WATCH

Jake Gyllenhaal has fought in wars both foreign and ancient on the big screen, and for his next film, he'll be tackling the war at home on the Los Angeles city streets.

The Oscar-nominee stars in "End of Watch," taking on the role of a LAPD officer, partnering up alongside Michael Pena. The two will be longtime partners, while Anna Kendrick will play Gyllenhaal's wife and Natalie Martinez will take on the role of Pena's love interest.

While researching for the film on a police ride along, Gyllenhaal and Pena actually witnessed a gang shooting, which sent one member to the hospital.

Gyllenhaal last appeared in another sort of crime drama, "Source Code," about a military officer who gets stuck in a time traveling device until he can defuse a bomb and unravel a terrorist plot that keeps destroying a major train line.
