Filming Begins on Alcon Entertainment's PRISNORS

Principal photography is underway on location in Georgia for Alcon Entertainment's "Prisoners," a Warner Bros. Pictures' release starring Oscar nominees Hugh Jackman ("LES MISERABLES") and Jake Gyllenhaal ("Brokeback Mountain"), under the direction of Denis Villeneuve, who helmed the Oscar-nominated foreign language film "Incendies."

How far would you go to protect your child? Keller Dover (Jackman) is facing every parent's worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her young friend, Joy, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect's release.

Knowing his child's life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. The desperate father will do whatever it takes to find the girls, but in doing so, he may lose himself, begging the question: When do you cross the line between Seeking Justice and becoming a vigilante?

Led by Jackman and Gyllenhaal, the dramatic thriller "Prisoners" features an all-star cast, including Maria Bello ("Beautiful Boy") as Keller's distraught wife, Grace; Oscar nominees Terrence Howard ("Hustle & Flow") and Viola Davis ("The Help," "Doubt") as Franklin and Nancy Birch, whose daughter Joy went missing with the Dovers'; Academy Award winner Melissa Leo ("The Fighter") as Alex Jones' Aunt Holly; and Paul Dano ("Looper") as Alex Jones.

Denis Villeneuve directs the film from an original screenplay by Aaron Guzikowski ("Contraband"). Kira Davis, Adam Kolbrenner, and Academy Award nominees Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove ("The Blind Side") are the producers, with John Starke, Ed McDonnell, Stephen Levinson, Robyn Meisinger and Mark Wahlberg serving as executive producers.

Villeneuve is supported by a top-flight creative team that includes 10-time Oscar-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins ("Skyfall"), Oscar-nominated production designer Patrice Vermette ("The Young Victoria"), Oscar-winning editor Joel Cox ("Unforgiven"), editor Gary Roach ("J. Edgar"), and costume designer Renée April ("Rise of the Planet of the Apes").

Alcon Entertainment's "Prisoners" is scheduled for release on September 20, 2013, and will be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
