Look out, Mississippi! Check that, Mississippi Grind. That's a new film starring Jake Gyllenhaal!

The movie will center around a gambler facing insurmountable debt. He teams up with a younger gambling addict (ahem, Jake) in order to change his luck. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the duo road trips it through the south with grand visions to reclaim what they've lost.

It sounds like the other gambler hasn't been cast yet, but the role would be ideal for a 40-something star. Considering the film's writers and directors recently worked with Zach Galifianakis on It's Kind of a Funny Story, something tells us their next project with Jake will be pretty darn good!

Although it'll be a while before Mississippi Grand hits theaters, Jake's next movie, End of Watch, starring Anna Kendrick and Michael Pena will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival later this month. It will be released in the USA in late September.
