Jake’s Deal With the Devil

Jake’s Deal With the Devil


Jake Gyllenhaal plans to star as a baseball fan who makes a pact with the devil to become a superstar slugger in his first musical, a remake of Damn Yankees. The actor, who received an Academy Award nomination as a closeted gay cowboy in 2005's Brokeback Mountain, is no stranger to making music, and tells E! Online's Marc Malkin, "Of course, I sing. I've been singing since I was a little child." Out producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, the duo responsible for award-winning film musicals Chicago and Hairspray, are still in the early stages of developing the film adaptation of the 1955 Broadway hit, and Jim Carrey is attached to make his musical debut as the devil.
