Prisoners is an upcoming American crime thriller film directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Aaron Guzikowski. Film's release date is set to September 20, 2013. Film stars Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Terrence Howard, Paul Dano and Maria Bello. After his six-year-old daughter and her best friend are kidnapped, a small town carpenter (Hugh Jackman) butts heads with a young, brash detective (Jake Gyllenhaal) in charge of the investigation. Feeling failed by the law, he captures the man (Paul Dano) he believes responsible, holding him captive in a desperate attempt to find out what he did with the girls, whom he's convinced are still alive. But the further he goes to get the man to confess, the closer he comes to losing his soul.
