People can make fun of Michael Bay all they want, but the dude knows how to direct an entertaining flick.
His latest film? An action-thriller titled Ambulance, starring the always incredible Jake Gyllenhaal. It’s a remake of the 2005 Danish film of the same name directed by Laurits Munch-Petersen.
In this remake, Gyllenhaal stars alongside Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
The two actors play a pair of bank robbers who hijack an ambulance, operated by a paramedic (Eiza González) and carrying a patient in critical condition.
The movie wrapped filming back in March of 2021 and is expected to hit theaters February 18, 2022. It’s set over the course of a single day in Los Angeles, so it should be an action-packed ride.
While speaking with USA Today, Gyllenhaal says shooting scenes in the back of an ambulance for hours and hours every single day gave him a newfound respect for first responders…
A lot of the movie I’m in an ambulance, so there’s not a lot of space (laughs) There are a lot of scenes where I’m just being thrown around an ambulance and I’ve got to say, that gave me even more respect for first responders because there are so many sharp edges in an ambulance nobody thinks about when it’s driving as fast it is.
