Gyllenhaal, 40, will take on the role of troubled 911 dispatcher Joe Baylor who receives a very mysterious and sinister call.

The Guilty - which is a remake of the 2018 Danish film with the same name - was initially released on a limited basis on 24 September but today (1 October) is the official release.

That's Friday night sorted, right?

It quickly becomes clear that Baylor has been demoted to the role of dispatched after working as a police detective.

He's about to hang up on a woman who he thinks has just called 911 to 'talk to somebody', but when it becomes clear that she's been abducted, he ends up scrambling to save her life.

With just a white van to go on in terms of descriptions, Bayler has to try and track down the victim before it's too late. But there's more to this case than meets the eye.

Surprisingly, only the voices of most of the main cast feature in the film as Det. Joe Baylor phones around frantically trying to save the abductee, Emily Lighton is voiced by Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) and Emily's young daughter, Abby, is voiced by Christiana Montoya.

Alongside them, the voices of Ethan Hawke (The Good Lord Bird, The Black Phone) as Sgt Bill Miller, Peter Sarsgaard (Jarhead) as Henry Fisher, and Da'Vine Joy Randolph (Office Christmas Party) as the CHP dispatcher take leading roles in the film.

There's also Christina Vidal (See No Evil) as Sgt. Denise Wade and Eli Goree (One Night In Miami) as Rick.

Fans are already loving the film, with one taking to Twitter writing: "Jake received multiple reviews saying that's one of his best work so far, I had the pleasure to watch it a couple of weeks ago and loved it.

"It is just as good as the original Danish version. I hope you guys enjoy it too."

Another added: "If you are a #JakeGyllenhaal fan, or you just like really good movies, you need to watch the new movie on @netflix called #TheGuilty."
