Jake Gyllenhaal found it 'difficult' working with snakes

Sep 27 2013, 12:12am CDT | by Bang Movies

Jake Gyllenhaal found it ''difficult'' to deal with the snakes in 'Prisoners'.

The 32-year-old actor - who plays Detective Loki in the thriller drama - wasn't keen on working with the real-life reptiles on set and despite initially thinking he would be working with CGI - Computer Generated Imaginary - he admits being around up to 10 of the slithery creatures made the movie more believable.

Speaking on UK daytime show 'Lorraine' this morning (26.09.13), he said: ''We had to deal with real snakes and real people - it was a difficult job. I think the reality of the movie was really important. I think a movie like this can go very easily into the genre elements or it can go quickly into the unbelievable.''

The star - who is known for taking on complex roles - previously admitted he prefers to take on a role that has a hidden depth because he likes something that he can get his teeth into.

He said: ''I look for something in the story that offers love in a more complicated way. I don't look for darkness, whatever that means, but in my mind, darkness acknowledges great light too.

''I think when it comes to a character, I'm moved by folk that I might struggle to love at first; characters that I have to do enough research on and think enough about to be able to really fall in love with them. Recently, in particular, that's what's been happening. I love Detective Loki. I found it hard to let him go.''

[Dan Gilroy directing on the set of Nightcrawler] In the late '90s, Warner Bros. was very keen to make a new Superman movie.

Fantastic Fest 2014 Preview: Our Most Anticipated Movies We Barely Knew Existed

Sep 18 2014 12:06pm CDT | Source: movies.com

The best part about a film festival like Fantastic Fest is that even obsessed movie buffs probably don't know much about the movies programmed. It's often a total wild card roster filled with movies that sort of exist in the shadows, at least as far as the U.S. is concerned, until Fantastic Fest and its ravenous audience put them on the map. Fantastic Fest does also play a number of big-name ...
